Assessment Topic

In this document, EPA presents the costs estimated for compliance with the final CWT effluent limitations guidelines and standards. Section 1 provides a general description of how the individual treatment technology and regulatory option costs were developed. In Sections 2 through 4, EPA describes the development of costs for each of the wastewater and sludge treatment technologies. In Section 5, EPA presents additional compliance costs to be incurred by facilities, which are not technology specific. These additional items are retrofit costs, monitoring costs, RCRA permit modification costs, and land costs.
NOTE: Throughout most of this document, the rule is referred to as a proposed rule. The analysis is, however, for the final rule. The rule was first proposed in 1995 (60 FR 5464), with a supplemental proposal in 1999 (64 FR 2280)
