This image was captured in 1976, after the discovery of pesticide contamination of a Chattanooga, Tennessee water supply system. The photograph depicted these public health officials, who were making observations of a repaired section of piping included in the contaminated circuit, after the discovery of the chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticide, chlordane in the drinking water. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Stewart Laboratories of Knoxville, Tenn., handled the water sampling.
