Burning River presentation
At 6 p.m. May 25, at the Brunswick Library, Ed Kelly will present a program in conjunction with the Brunswick Area Historical Society about the “burning river” – the Cuyahoga River in the 60s. Kelly was manager of the field teams that investigated sources of water pollution on the Cuyahoga River and its tributaries along with area streams that discharge into Lake Erie after the big fire in 1969.
Ed’s association with the Cuyahoga River began at a get- together with John Moore, who was a friend and a former chemist with the City of Cleveland, Division of Water Pollution Control, Bureau of Industrial Waste. John indicated that the city was in need of field investigators who would seek out potential polluters of the Cuyahoga River. The river had recently caught fire due to the oily and sometimes colorful wastes that continually flowed from unknown sources along the river.”
Kelly said, “I told John back then that I had no experience in industrial pollution investigations” He replied, “No one else has experience either! We need people that will do what is necessary to identify sources of pollution to the river and other streams that discharge to Lake Erie.” I accepted the challenge and was soon hired by the Bureau of Industrial Wastes to assist in investigating reported water pollution problems.
Come to the free program at the Brunswick Library and hear first-hand stories about the polluted river and how it was improved.
The program is free and open to all. Thursday, May 25, 2017, 6:00pm
