Economic And Environmental Impact Analysis Of The Proposed Effluent Limitations Guidelines And Standards For The Concentrated Aquatic Animal Production Industry.
This document summarizes both the costs and economic impacts of technologies that form the basis for the proposed limits and standards for the concentrated aquatic animal production (CAAP) industry and the change in water quality and potential benefits associated with the proposed regulation.
Benefits endpoints were quantified for improved water quality (i.e., reduced pollutant loadings). Monetized benefits were estimated as willingness-to-pay for increased recreational opportunities resulting from improved water quality.
Economic impacts were quantified using a compliance cost-to-revenue test with thresholds at 3%, 5%, and 10%.
