Summary
Near the end of the nineteenth century, the cities of Boston and Oakland each faced environmental crises -- water contamination and water shortages -- which existing institutions could not solve. How those cities resolved their problems is the basis of a comparative history that provides valuable insights into urban development and explores the political implications and environmental impacts of regionalism
