The New Alchemists actually started in Woods Hole, MA. They may
or may not still be together, if they are I believe they've moved...(to
The founders of the group, Drs. John and Nancy Todd now run Ocean
Arks Intl. 1 Locust Street, Falmouth, MA. 02540 phone:(508)540-6801.
They are involved primarily (if not exclusively) in bioremediation. They
run several biological wastewater treatment facilities- one in
Providence, RI another's in Harwich, MA. Good Luck! Will
