Editorial Reviews

Review

McGuire takes us down the long road to safeguard our water supply at the beginning of the twentieth century and does it with clear and engaging prose that lay readers can understand. --Penelope Grenoble, Editor, Source magazine

The Chlorine Revolution…is an extraordinary book telling a remarkable story. --Michael E. Campana, Professor of Hydrogeology and Water Resources Management, Oregon State University

From the Author

I have recently completed a book entitled: The Chlorine Revolution: Water Disinfection and the Fight to Save Lives. The book will be published in March 2013 by the American Water Works Association. The Chlorine Revolution is about a courageous physician and his partnership with the greatest sanitary engineer of the time to plan, build and operate the first, large-scale drinking water disinfection system in the U.S. It is also about a court case that extended over two trials (1906-10) that pitted engineering and scientific experts of the day against one another. The verdict approving the use of chlorine for the Jersey City water supply caused an explosion of its use, which led to the conquest of waterborne disease in the U.S.
