Quick Water Pollution Clean-UP Requires Limited Federal Financial Assistance to Industry.

This new League position on financial incentives to industry for the abatement of water pollution was released by the National Board after its mid-January evaluation of the local unit consensus reports.

Although the League thinks that costs of pollution abatement are a responsibility of the polluter, it acknowledges that some help should be made available because of the urgency and immediacy of the problem and the immense costs involved. League members agree th4:

  1. Strict enforcement of anti-pollution measures should accompany financial assistance.

  2. Duration and scope of assistance should be limited.

  3. Criteria for assistance should include consideration of financial need of the company, economic base of the community, area stream standards, extent and complexity of the pollution Problem of the company and region.
