The Lower Mount Washington Valley became the gateway to the entire valley in the 1700s. Settlers saw both the scenery and the possibilities of the deep and steady rivers for water power and travel, the timber for homes, the rich earth for planting, and the abundance of food in forests and streams. The early years were not easy, and men and women faced the challenges of the wilderness: hard work, fierce wildlife, possible injury, and loneliness. Seeking companionship, families bonded together and created a sense of community amidst the mountains and valleys of New Hampshire's expansive north country. This collection of photographs, many never before published, graphically illustrates the beauty of the area, the strength and character of its people, and the simple and practical lines of the early homes, mills, and one-room schoolhouses. It depicts the gradual changes that took place over a century of life, from the 1850s to the 1950s. Tough, strong men and women, the early settlers often became landowners of substance. They left a legacy of the same qualities to their descendants, many of whom are still living in the Lower Mount Washington Valley.

Using biotechnology to help control landfill processes can mitigate costs, shorten the time needed to process solid waste, and ease the typical ecological damage to the land being used. This first-of-its-kind book provides regulators, designers, landfill owners, and operators with information that supports the utility of landfill bioreactors and provides design and operating criteria essential for the successful application of this technology. It pulls together laboratory, pilot, and full-scale experiences into one concise guide to designing and running municipal landfills as bioreactors. Landfill Bioreactor Design and Operation covers the history and background of landfill technology, research studies of actual bioreactor landfills, expected leachate and gas yields, specific design criteria, operation guidelines, and reuse of landfill sites to avoid having to establish new sites. For anyone looking for an alternative to large, wasteful landfill sites, this book provides a practical alternative to the problem.
