    New England had accumulation of pollution from area mills and tanneries.

    In 1978 when I went to college in the Boston area (though as we know Boston is not a big college town), people were celebrating that the Charles River basin cleanup had improved the water to the point that it started freezing over in the winter again. The joke for the school sailing lessons there was how it used to be that if you fell into the water they didn’t bother pulling you out again.

    Boston Harbor was a much bigger problem, being so polluted that the new anti-pollution laws technically meant that if you took a rowboat out there and scooped up a bucket of the water, it would have been illegal to dump it back in again.
