This chapter discusses the implementation of the Public Health Act of 1848 in Whippingham and West Cowes in the Isle of Wight. Ranger, an inspector sent by the General Board, recommended that the Public Health Act should be applied to Whippingham since it needed both a better supply of water and an improved system of drainage. In West Cowes, the 1848 Act opened up new opportunities for the active ratepayers and started a new round of improvements in the town.
