The Presumpscot's Progress

Tispaquin's Revenge:
During the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, very few people, including scientists, ever
believed the Presumpscot River would attain Class A water quality during their
lifetimes. During this period and in the decades prior, most people in southern
Maine, and those who lived along the Presumpscot, had long given up hope that
the Presumpscot River would ever be clean again. The challenge seemed too
daunting and the prospect too remote. What then seemed a fantasy is now the
reality. It has been done. It can be done.
