Contents Notes
Part 1 examines the history of the Clean Water Act of 1972 with case studies of some key U.S. waterbodies (Cuyahoga River, Tampa Bay, Potomac River, Chesapeake Bay) whose poor conditions led to the passage of the Act. Part 2 focuses on the future of the nation's rivers, lakes and coastlines and what it will take to keep them fishable, swimmable and livable for both nearby residences and businesses.
