It was produced by a policy research project undertaken at the LBJ School in the academic year 1976-77. The study, funded by the Texas Department of Health, makes concrete policy reconnnendations to the Environmental Protection Agency and the TDH on such issues as federal financing and responsibility, state financing for private systems, monitoring of small systems, public information regulations, and the granting of variances and exemptions. Publication of the report was funded by a grant from the Ford Foundation.
