The Macroeconomic Impacts of Federal Pollution Control Programs: 1976 Assessment

This study represents an updating and continuation of the work done in previous years by Chase Econometrics for the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in assessing the macroeconomic impact of Federal environmental programs. The analysis uses abatement cost estimates for the period 1970-1983 supplied by CEQ for air and water pollution abatement; these figures are given in Table 1. The estimates include capital investment, annualized capital costs, and operating and maintenance costs for each of the years in the period of analysis, and are disaggregated by two digit industry. The cost estimates are consistent with the "incremental abatement costs" estimates published in the CEQ 1975 annual report.
