The trend in Federal support of municipal waste-treatment construction is toward larger annual appropriations with higher levels of support for states providing matching funds. States should enact parallel grant-in-aid legislation to take full advantage of Federal aid in the future and maintain an influential position in water-pollution control. Rapid movement toward financial assistance for industrial waste treatment is not anticipated unless the current study by the Secretary of the Interior should add to the momentum. Effluent charges are considered unlikely if industry responds favorably to its responsibilities for water-pollution control.
