The Boston Harbor Sewage Stack

Carolyn A. Levi
1 pp.
MITSG 92-13

This interactive educational computer program teaches how municipalities deal with sewage, how sewage systems work, about nonpoint pollution, and what citizens can do to help, focusing on Boston Harbor and its cleanup. Along the way, users encounter topics for exploration, including storm sewers and combined sewer overflows (CSOs); nonpoint pollution from pets, spilled waste oil, lawn and garden chemicals, and other sources; what not to flush and why; how officials can tell if water is polluted; and why it all matters. The program is written for middleschool students, but is deep enough for adults. Schools and environmental organizations, especially in coastal areas, will find this program a useful addition to their environmental education offerings.
