Assessment Topic

The 1982 Needs Survey has been completed in compliance with Sections 205(a) and 516(b)(1) of the Clean Water Act (CWA). It provides the best estimate available of the nationwide costs of compliance with the goals of the 1981 Construction Grant Amendments to the Act.
This survey modifies and updates the comprehensive cost estimates of the previous five surveys for constructing all grant-eligible municipal treatment works needed by existing and future populations. It reaffirms that meeting the water quality goals of the CWA will require a substantial investment.
There is also an addendum to this document addressing the cost for control of combined sewer discharge to marine bays and estuaries (W.83.5).
