Mosquito Control – Pennsauken NJ

Description

Anti-malaria efforts were undertaken by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in Pennsauken, New Jersey west of Pennsauken Creek and near the Delaware River. The work involved “revamping of the drainage areas” in an effort to combat the spread of the disease by removing the breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
