Abstract

The paper pertains to a water pollution control program involving the enhancement of a river system which was designed primarily for navigation and to receive industrial and sanitary wastes. A ten-year program is described for the upgrading of the waterways which, while flowing through the Chicago megalopolis, receive wastes from industry, treatment plants, and ships. Specific emphasis is placed on the industrial waste program and the manner in which it is enforced. The enforcement action involves detection of pollution by patrol boat, aerial surveys, and on-site visits, notification to the polluter, discussion of plans for prevention of pollution, and setting of dates for completion. If pollution is not abated after a specific date, court action proceeds.
