Estimating industrial water pollution in small regions

Abstract

Estimating industrial water pollution requires information on present levels of pollution and behavioral factors likely to bring about changes in the future. A model covering 26 pollution parameters was calibrated from readily available data for 2026 plants in the New York region. The simulations produced a microspatial scale view of industrial pollution potential. Attempts to improve the model by collecting regional industrial surveys and questionnaires proved unrewarding because data remained incomplete and inconsistent with respect to location and timing of samples. The potential impact of federal regulations and technological changes on industrial effluent generation will be influenced largely by the organizational structures governing the abatement program.
