Abstract:

The Binghamton Wastewater Managment Study was a cooperative Federal, State, and local planning effort to develop viable alternative plans for the protection and enhancement of water quality and associated resources of the Susquehanna River Basin within Broome and Tioga Counties, New York. The Plan Formulation Appendix documents all significant events and decisions involved in the formulation, evaluation, and selection of wastewater management plans. As such, it provides a sequential summary of progress throughout the Study. The first step in the planning process was to determine Federal, State, and local problems, issues, and objectives of wastewater management. To meet these objectives, alternative plans were formulated through an iterative process of systems design, an assessment of all pertinent impacts, and an evaluation of the plans effectiveness in fulfilling the objectives. Final Plans for Choice were compared by displaying all significant environmental, economic, and social impacts, Also contained in this Appendix is a summary of the institutional analysis which proposed arrangements for implementation of each of the final plans and a summary of the public interaction in the planning process. The recommended plan is described in the last chapter.
