The Thames and its Tributaries





Pollution, Public Health, Sanitation

    Discusses an announcement 'from a trustworthy contemporary' describing the decision of the Windsor Board of Health, acting in accordance with the advice of Mr Menzies (probably William Menzies), to utilize its sewage instead of discharging it into the Thames. Believes that this news will be welcomed by Windsor residents because they will be able to drink the local water. Notes that Menzies has discovered sewage being discharged into other parts of the Thames and anticipates the benefits of the abatement of this 'great nuisance'.
