In doing so, he saved thousands of lives from cholera outbreaks that regularly plagued the city. This STEM-focused story provides a window into the past and shows how one invention went on to affect generations to come - and teaches kids how they can prevent pollution in their own neighborhoods today"-- Provided by publisher.
