This document addresses the Congressional House Appropriations Committee's request that EPA report on:
(1) the Agency's analysis of the benefits of decentralized wastewater system alternatives compared to current (i.e., centralized) systems;
(2) the potential savings and/or costs associated with the use of these alternatives;
(3) the ability of the Agency to implement these alternatives within the current statutory and regulatory structure; and
(4) the plans of the Agency, if any, to implement any such alternative measures using funds appropriated in fiscal year 1997.
Also addressed in this response is the Committee's inquiry on the role of Rural Electric Cooperatives in upgrading rural drinking water and wastewater facilities.
