Abstract : A questionaire was sent to each state water quality management agency to investigate the present use of flexible effluent standards in the United States. Responses from 48 states reveal that 45 states use flexible effluent standards and over half plan to expand their use of them in the future. There is great variability from one state to the next in the type and amount of flexibility used with only a few states routinely using flexible standards. An exploration of the techniques used successfully by some states of manage flexible standards is used to make recommendations on ways to expand use of flexible standards. Since over half the states infrequently use flexible standards there is a potential for substantial monetary savings through their increased use.
