Abstract One goal of the Clean Water Act (CWA) is to improve water quality conditions of the nations waters to attain 'fishable and swimmable' status nationwide. In support of this goal, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is revising the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program regulations and the effluent limitation guidelines (ELGs) for concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Changes to the NPDES regulations affect which animal feeding operations (AFOs) are considered CAFOs and are therefore subject to the NPDES permit program. Changes to the ELG determine what technology-based requirements apply to CAFOs. RTI applied the National Water Pollution Control Assessment Model (NWPCAM) to estimate national economic benefits to surface water quality resulting from implementation of new regulations for CAFOs (including revision of NPDES permit regulations and the ELGs for CAFOs). NWPCAM is a national-scale water quality model for simulating the water quality and economic benefits that result from various water pollution control policies.
