Dirty Water/Clean Water: a Chronology of Events Surrounding the Degradation and Cleanup of Boston Harbor

MITSG 90-21

Boston Harbor, one of the most polluted harbors in the United States, is also one of the most studied, subject to the most litigations and, recently, the most politically embarrassing. Despite the attention poured into the harbor, researchers, the public and the press have difficulty grasping the scope and history of the issues involved. Investigations have been hampered by lack of a single source documenting the trials and tribulations of pollution in the harbor. This publication eliminates much of this difficulty; it lists and annotates the events, documents and legislation of this important area, covering the period from 1630 to 1990 with annotated entries, including excerpts. Cross-referenced bibliographies accompany the entries, along with lists of general articles and libraries with Boston Harbor-related documents.
