MARKER TEXT: From 1895 to 1904, Arthur W. Palmer analyzed thousands of Illinois water samples in the newly established Illinois state water survey. He created the first systematic documentation of the quality of Illinois water. These data became the basis for sanitary and public health reform, standards of water quality, and the science of Aquatic Ecology.
