River of Industry, River of Recreation

August 29, 1976, Appleton Post-Crescent
Another feature in the continuing series about the Fox River from 1976.  While the valley benefitted from the role the river played in industry, years of unabated pollution from plants along the Fox were a major hurdle. The Clean Water Act of 1972 was a major initiative in beginning to restore the integrity of the Fox River and in allowing communities to once again, recognize the river for the recreational bonanza that it is.
