This paper was begun with the distinct purpose of examining the "Great Stink" of 1858 and how it resulted in legislation that provided for the effective drainage of London. However, because of the parallel between 1858 and the ecology crisis of today, this study expanded to examine the role of the Government in allowing such a situation to develop and its attempt to correct the problem.
