Abstract:

Appendix E discusses only the social and environmental implications of the regional wastewater management systems, Appendix F describes the impacts of each alternative system on existing institutional arrangements in the area, and Appendix G evaluates the alternatives with respect to the implications from a local, regional and national standpoint. These 3 appendices address the final array of 5 wastewater management alternatives developed in this planning study. Each alternative is unique to itself and represents many advantages and disadvantages depending on the viewpoint of the observer. Alternative I is a reference base reflecting a consolidation of local planning concepts and is designed to meet existing water quality standards established by Illinois and Indiana. The remaining 4 alternatives employ 3 distinctly different treatment technologies to achieve water quality levels in keeping with the National goal of eliminating pollutant discharges into navigable waters by 1985 expressed in PL 92-500.
