Rebirth of a River

Record #:
The Mead Corporation's Paperboard Mill in Sylva was a major employer for over forty years. It also poured tons of waste into the Tuckasegee River, making the waterway nearly lifeless between Sylva and Fontana Lake. Eventually, a confrontation developed between pro-industry and pro-environment factions. Estes discusses the dispute and its resolution.
