Abstract The report analyzes the cost-effectiveness of two alternative regulatory options: A Treated Discharge Option and a Zero Discharge Option. The report compares the total annualized cost incurred for each of the two regulatory options to the corresponding effectiveness of that option in reducing the discharge of pollutants. The effectiveness measure used is poinds of pollutant removed weighted by an estimate of the relative toxicity of the pollutant. The study discusses the cost-effectiveness methodology employed in the report including the pollutants included in the analysis and the toxic weighting factors. The report lists the pesticide active ingredients (PAIs) proposed for regulation. Also included are details regarding pesticide manufacturing facilities which are excluded from the cost-effectiveness analysis and a sensitivity analysis of POTW removal efficiencies.
