Cuyahoga River fire

One of the more famous environmental planning disasters in American history centers around the polluting of Cleveland's Cuyahoga River. It is amazing to look back and see how bad things were for the river when it caught fire in 1969. The website, The Pop History Dig, has posted a recollection of that tumultuous time.

How much better is it today? Now the Cuyahoga Valley is a National Park!
