For those who have wondered how exactly clean mountain water travels all the way from the Catskills to New York City, this free illustrated presentation will expose the creation of the massive concrete umbilical cord that delivers this life-giving water to millions of city dwellers.

Diane Galusha, author of Liquid Assets the definitive history of the development of the Big Apple’s three-century search for water for its millions on local and regional history, is on the staff at the Catskill Watershed Corporation and is the founding president of the Historical Society of the Town of Middletown, Delaware County.

The snow date for this talk is February 18.
