Old Home Town - 100 years ago

September 1, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for Sept. 1, 1907: "The crusade for an abundance of pure, wholesome water in Lawrence can best and most quickly be settled by the water company spending the money necessary to remove all pollution and sewage containment. University officials say not enough is being done and that all city water should be boiled before drinking it. If the franchise of the water company needs to be revoked, so be it. We demand and deserve good water. S.J. Crumbine, state health board secretary, has conducted tests and concurs that steps should be taken to improve the situation."
