Environmental And Economic Benefit Analysis Of Proposed Revisions To The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Regulation And The Effluent Guidelines For Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations.

It examines in detail four environmental quality improvements that would result from the regulatory changes: (1) improvements in the suitability of freshwater resources for fishing and swimming, (2) reduced incidence of fish kills, (3) improved commercial shellfishing, and (4) reduced contamination of private wells.
