9780982548516: Wachusett: How Boston's 19th Century Quest for Water Changed Four Towns and a Way of Life

From 1895 to 1908, one of the largest civil engineering projects in New England history transformed four Massachusetts towns (Clinton, Sterling, Boylston, and West Boylston) creating Boston's first truly modern water supply system -- the Wachusett Reservoir and aqueduct. This book, for the first time, tells the story of this engineering marvel as well the human dramas of the project: strikes, murders, and the deaths of more than 30 workers.
