Description about the Book
The author in this book discusses the major issues faces by US. As majority of the original wetlands in the US have vanished, transformed into farm fields or buried under city streets. Deadly disease are the major issues for the 20th century.
In The Marsh Builders, Sharon Levy tells about histories of wetlands loss and water pollution. The book’s springboard is the tale of a years-long citizen uprising in Humboldt County, California, which led to the creation of one of the first U.S. wetlands designed to treat city sewage.

More than forty years after the passage of the Clean Water Act launched a nation-wide effort to rescue lakes, rivers and estuaries fouled with human and industrial waste, the need for revived wetlands is more urgent than ever. Waters from Lake Erie and Chesapeake Bay to China’s Lake Taihu are tainted with an overload of nutrients carried in runoff from farms and cities, creating underwater dead zones and triggering algal blooms that release toxins into drinking water sources used by millions of people. As the planet warms, scientists are beginning to design wetlands that can shield coastal cities from rising seas. Revived wetlands hold great promise for healing the world’s waters.
