The Water Pollution Control Commission was created in 1947 as a
result of the recommendation of the temporary Committee on Water
Pollution which had been designated to study the problem of water
pollution in 1946. The Commission is composed of seven members,
three of whom are appointed by the Governor for a term of six years.
The other four members are a representative of the State Board of
Health, the Chairman of the Board of Natural Besources, the Director
of the Department of Game and Inland Fish and the Director of the
Department of Research and Education. The Chairman, who must be
one of the appointed members, is designated by the Governor.

The Commission has the power to pass such regulations as are
necessary to prevent the pollution of the streams and waters within
the State. The agency studies and investigates all sources of steam
pollution; it may request or suggest that known polluters take proper
steps to correct the situation. Should any request or suggestion not
be complied with, the Commission may order that the request be
fulfilled within a definite period of time. Any polluter who has a com-
plaint or feels a specific hardship in complying may receive a hearing
before the Commission. The Commission has collected data in regard
to stream pollution in the various regions of the State and municipal
sewage disposal, and is currently making a survey of industrial waste
disposal. The agency maintains, at 2114 N. Charles Street, a labora-
tory for the purpose of determining the amount and cause of water
