CRISES IN THE INDUSTRIAL CITY - Increased urban population & rapid urbanization - Health impacts on workers exposed to toxic metals and chemicals - Poor housing, lack of sanitation, lack of clean water, poor diet, endemic disease - Environmental crises – contamination of water, land and air - massive pollution discharge – hazardous environment
  8. 8. WATER POLLUTION - Pollution – residential waste (human & animal); commercial waste (factories & businesses) - Factories sited next to rivers or bays - textile, chemical, iron, steel need water for production process – used water put back - Meat plants flush carcasses; processing and packaging plants dump glues, gums, dyes, fertilizer, sausage casings, brushes
  9. 9. LAND POLLUTION - Factory – garbage, ashes, scrap metals, slag disposed on open lots - Household waste, urine, feces and animal carcasses dumped on streets - Horse manure and urine littered streets - Collection and disposal of solid waste uncoordinated and privatized - No public system, only wealthy could afford
  10. 10. AIR POLLUTION - Factory – smoke pollution by product of coal consumption - Factory – released chemicals: chlorine, ammonia, carbon monoxide, methane, hydrosulfuric acid - Soot from smokestacks and locomotives - Smoke equated with progress, growth, jobs and economic prosperity, science was not able to link public health to air pollution
