"Science and the New Jersey Water Crisis of 1876"

Wednesday, Sep 25, 2013 12:00p

Mr. Kevin K. Olsen, a resident of Wayne Twp. is employed as the Instrumentation Specialist on the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department, Montclair State University. In 1876 the cities of northern NJ were facing a crisis. The main source of their water, the Passaic River had become hopelessly polluted and the mayors of Newark, Jersey City, Hoboken, Bayonne, Orange, Bloomfield, and Montclair appealed to the scientists of the NJ Geological Survey for help in finding new sources of drinking water.
