This photo essay shows the changes that development and time have brought the Triangle area. Photos from the past are paired with photos of the same places as they are in 1989. The locations include: Wonderland Theatre (1920), Watts Hospital (1909), IBM Site (1965), Hargett Street (1940), Fayetteville Street (1959), Carolina Barber Shop (1954), and Crook’s Fish & Produce Market (1951).
This is Part 2 of a 3-part series on water pollution in the Triangle area. The sources of the Triangle’s water pollution are examined. The majority of pollution is from toxins that run off of city streets caused by citizens. Farmers account for 17 percent of the problem and industry and faulty sewage treatment facilities account for 16 percent. The governments role in regulation and what can be done is also examined.
