More than 350 years ago the first white man excreted his wastes into the Kenduskeag Stream. Today, the City of Bangor offers its citizens the same sewage treatment facilities as that given to the crewmen of Samuel de Champlain's ship in 1604.

This report attempts to describe the extent of pollution in the Kenduskeag Stream and point out the potential health hazard of this foul smelling watercourse that divides our city with the sewage of our citizens.
