Assessment Topic

This economic benefits analysis of the then proposed effluent limitations guidelines for the organic chemicals and plastics and synthetic fibers industries consists of in-depth analyses of two case study stream areas, the Kanawha River in West Virginia and the Houston Ship Channel/Upper Galveston Bay in Texas. The benefits assessments are separated into recreation and other nonhealth-related benefits (which include quantified and monetized estimates of recreation, commerical fishing, and intrinsic/nonuse benefits), and health benefits (which are quantified to the extent feasible but not assigned dollar values).
