With respect to the objectives of the Report which necessarily emphasize the technical aspects and measures of controlling discharges to water, land, and air, the proposed development of such was indicated to all participants and panel members in the Notice of Inquiry dated May 17, 1972, and in the opening remarks available in the transcript of the proceedings.
