UPGRADING MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT IN RURAL AREAS
No 283816, 1977 AAEA-WAEA Joint Meeting, July 31-August 3, San Diego, California from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
The 1972 amendments to the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (P.L. 92-500) call for upgrading municipal wastewater treatment throughout the United States. The amendments established the goal of best practical waste treatment by 1977 and best available treatment by 1983 for all municipal wastewater treatment works. Although some delays have been granted, it is clear that many communities will eventually have to improve their treatment facilities.
