This lecture examines the history of sewer and trash service in late-19th and 20th-century Indianapolis, 
focusing on archaeological evidence found the city's near-Westside. The lecture discusses the complex range of sewer technologies and waste management practices in the city since the Civil War and patterns of environmental injustice that placed working-class and African-American residents in the city's most unhealthy conditions. 

This event is a part of Indiana Archaeology Month.  During September, organizations around the state celebrate archaeology by hosting events where individuals can learn more about the archaeology field and the past.  Learn more at
