MODELING ONE OF THE LARGEST SANITATION DISTRICTS IN THE U.S.
Abstract:The Virginia metropolitan area known as “Hampton Roads” proudly boasts the world's largest natural harbor. But in 1925, the waters of Hampton Roads, which include Chesapeake Bay and surrounding rivers, were suffering from pollution caused by oyster fishing and rapid growth. The waters were about to be condemned! The Virginia General Assembly took steps that led to the formation, in 1940, of the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD).
