Abstract : This report reviews water quality from the standpoint of determining the influence of water contaminants on various uses of water, the technology and cost of water supply purification, the technology and cost of waste and recycling water purification, the benefits from enhanced water quality, economic techniques for optimal water supply purification and allocation, and economic techniques for optimal waste and recycling water purification. The intent of the report is to provide Corps of Engineers and other planners with a summary and critique of the literature and a synopsis of relevant methodology which relates water quantity and water quality. Economic cost and benefit calculations are stressed along with optimizing procedures.
