Congress of the U. S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Government Operations.
Presented in this bulletin is the test of the hearing before the Conservation and Natural Resources Subcommittee of the Committee on Government Operations, United States House of Representatives, ninety-first Congress, concerning a national inventory of industrial wastes. The hearing was held September 17, 1970, to examine the long delay of the executive branch in instituting a much-needed inventory of industrial wastes, and in utilizing the inventory to facilitate enforcement of the Refuse Act of 1899. Further, they sought to scrutinize what the Corps of Engineers is doing concerning enforcement of the Refuse Act and how the Interior Department's inventory relates to the Corps' program. Statements and letters are submitted for the record by members of the Federal Water Quality Administration (FWQA), Department of the Interior, Corps of Engineers, and Bureau of the Budget. Appended material includes various correspondence between the subcommittee and federal agencies, policy statements and guidelines, and the proposed FWQA industrial waste questionnaire with accompanying instructions and definitions. Henry S. Reuss chaired the subcommittee. (BL)
