The effect of surcharges on industrial wastes and the effects of different water rates were studied using regression equations. Strength charges do cause industrial firms to discharge less waste. Charging cities and industries that discharge treated wastes to streams is not necessarily the quickest or best way to achieve given standards. Transferable effluent permits may be more acceptable politically and provide some valuable information at the same time.
