This paper deals with the hypothesis that, in many cases, internal costs to the organization expended on capital equipment for waste treatment may be economically justifiable when external savings to others are considered. A case is examined where external savings to a water purveyor appear to balance the wastewater treatment capital of a paper plant located on the purveyor's source river.
