The collection of State-Federal Enforcement Conference proceedings and reports, and technical and administrative files related to enforcement notices are excellent primary sources of data and information related to water pollution problems in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s. Federal agency documents related to water pollution and enforcement activities are located in the National Archives, 8601 Adelphi Road, Adelphi, Maryland. A shuttle bus is available from the National Archives building in Washington, DC. Records are available for review only from 9:00 a.m. through 5 p.m. at the National Archives. The contact telephone number for the National Archives in Adelphi, Maryland (as of October 3, 1996) is (301) 713-7250, ext. 331.
