"If I Felt Alone" by Elaine Osborne.
Book Summary

If I Felt Alone is a story of strength, perseverance and survival.

If I Felt Alone is one woman’s personal story of a growing concern over the local sanitary district’s (WLSSD) major sewage spills – five times in five years (1980-1985).

These events prompted Osborne to take steps to draw attention to the faulty pipeline, despite WLSSD’s numerous denials.

Millions of gallons of toxic chemicals and raw domestic sewage invaded the Maki Swamp in Esko, near her home. This toxic waste came from hospitals, mortuaries, dry cleaners, printers, gas stations and other businesses.

Ninety percent (90%) was papermill waste water, all discharging into the same 500 foot area – affecting her well and others private properties and drinking water.

In her book, Elaine relates the effects of chemical exposures; medical and legal difficulties, and details her environmental illness.

During the five Division E sewage spills (1980-1985), millions of gallons of raw domestic sewage invaded the Maki Swamp, along with toxic materials from hospitals, mortuaries, dry cleaners, printers, and other businesses. Most importantly, this toxic load was made of about 90 percent paper mill wastewater, all discharging into the Maki Swamp, affecting private properties and drinking water.

This book is one woman's personal story of strength and perseverance with chemical exposures because of these chemical spills near her home in Esko, Minnesota.
