Abstract

"Focus on the Environment" piece about the great process made in cleaning up the 174-mile-long Androscoggin River since U.S. senator Edmund Muskie's Clean Water Act. In 1970, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency had declared the river one of the ten most polluted rivers in the country. Now, thanks to progress made under the Clean Water Act, towns along river, from Rumford to Brunswick, are beginning to take pride in the waterway and to use it as an economic asset. With a chronological list of highlights relating to the rebirth of Androscoggin.
