To Save Lake Erie: Engineers in the Age of Ecology
July 7, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
David Stradling, professor of urban and environmental history at the University of Cincinnati, describes the city of Cleveland’s late 1960s and early 1970s efforts to improve water quality in Lake Erie. Engineers proposed a variety of solutions, some of them remarkably fanciful, even as the persistence of combined sewers ensured lasting – and ongoing – pollution problems.
This event is part of “Landscapes, Rivers, and Lakes: Ohio’s Natural Environment and a Changing Climate,” a series of three virtual Ohio Humanities Speakers Bureau events examining the connections between the public humanities and the environment.
