Hide details for SummarySummary
1990 report summarizing the direct costs of public and private pollution control activities in the United States. Presents data on environmental pollution control costs during the period 1972-1987, projects these costs for each subsequent year to the year 2000 under a number of assumptions, and breaks them down in a variety of ways. These ways include differentiating among capital, operating, and annualized costs, as well as the medium where the pollution is controlled, the economic sector (e.g., public, private) from which the control is funded, and whether the costs result from new or existing regulations. Cost estimates for five categories of environmental media (air, land, water, chemical, and multi-media) over the years 1972-2000 for each public sector and the private sector are included.
