MetadataShow full item record
This paper is concerned with illustrating the problems of industrial pollution control and treatment in the Indiana river system. It has been written in four main divisions. The first d1vision deals with the agencies in Indiana whose primary concern is combating and halting industrial and municipal pollution. With an idea of how these agencies are organized, it is more apparent why complete success in halting pollution has not yet been accomplished, for there are many problems with under-staffing and lack of funds. The second section describes the different methods for controlling and treating pollution, according to the various wastes being discharged by individual industries along the rivers. The third section gives a more complete account of the various tests taken on the water at the testing stations throughout Indiana. The individual tests are all important in determining whether or not the water has reached a pollution level dangerous for the water's various uses. The fourth section combines all the information the first three sections in a discussion of the twelve main rivers in Indiana.
