THE MARSH BUILDERS The Fight for Clean Water, Wetlands, and Wildlife

by | Read by Karen White

Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This fascinating audiobook about how Arcata, California, pioneered the use of wetlands to treat city sewage is a timely and involving listen--timely because the 1972 Clean Water Act is under new threat and involving because Karen White's straightforward narration keeps the focus on the story. It's a story that blends how little we knew about disease until recently--here's looking at you, cholera--with the effect of water pollution on human and environmental health. Stunning fact: Flush toilets were widely used before communities had sewage lines. Yuck! Enter the heroes of Humboldt County, who battled Big Sewage and re-created a marsh that attracts wildlife and people while filtering the yucky stuff. They're wonderful folks to spend time with.
