ESTIMATES OF WASTEWATER TREATMENT CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS IN RURAL AMERICA

This study examines the changes in capital requirements needed to bring rural wastewater treatment systems into compliance with Clean Water Act standards. Results indicate a significant but concentrated reduction in backlog costs and a dramatic increase in service availability between 1978 and 1984. System needs are estimated at $20.2 billion, with residents in the Northeast and in the smallest rural communities facing the highest per capita costs.
