Corporation X pollutes Town Y.

Townspeople get sick.

But the story of Tom's River, NJ is a little different. The people living along the river, did some sleuthing and connected the dots between the polluter and the illnesses.

Environmental journalist Dan Fagin has written about this in a new book. It's called Tom's River: A Story of Science and Salvation.
