On Saturday, November 21st at 10:30AM, we will be screening Deep Water – Building the Catskill Water System at the Olive Free Library - 4033 Rt 28-A in West Shokan.
Fifteen years ago, we released our documentary, which has been in wide circulation since then, and which remains the classic story of the great struggle to protect water at its source in the Catskills and to provide it to NY City.
This year marks the one-hundred year anniversary since water began flowing to New York City from the Ashokan Reservoir. Now, the Ashokan is a wonderful spot to visit, to walk on the causeway, to fish, to admire the view and marvel at the engineering that built six west-of-the-Hudson reservoirs to provide wonderful water for nine million plus residents of NY City.
The Olive Library provided many of the images, song-books and artifacts we used in the film and is the same venue at which we premiered the documentary some 15 years ago. We're excited to be back again, and to screen the 45 minute documentary with the Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program and the Olive Library as hosts. The co-director, Tobe Carey, will be on-hand to answer questions after the film. Please come join us.
Deep Water – Building the Catskill Water System is available for purchase on our web site and at more than twenty venues throughout the Catskills/Hudson Valley.
