Cartoonist John Chase drew this history of New Orleans' efforts to provide pure drinking water and adequate drainage for the S&WB's pamphlet The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans: How It Began, the Problems It Faces, the Way It Works, the Job It Does in 1959. The Louisiana Division has several editions of the pamphlet, and many of the facts given in these captions were taken from this source; much of the information in the pamphlet is also reproduced in the Sewerage and Water Board's website.
