STORIES OF WATER AND WASTE: A Walking History of the Hasbrouck Sewershed

When:
October 13, 2019: 12:00PM to 2:00PM
Where:
Foxhall Ave & Broadway Kingston, NY 12401 map

Join Riverkeeper, the Art Department of SUNY New Paltz, Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency, Hudson River Watershed Alliance and the residents of Mid-town and Rondout for a participatory program as part of the O+ Festival titled, STORIES OF WATER AND WASTE: A Walking History of the Hasbrouck Sewershed.

The program will consist of a short discussion about Kingston’s ecology, history, and infrastructure with Riverkeeper watershed educator Sebastian Pillitteri and SUNY New Paltz professor Matthew Friday. Then participants will begin rolling the giant trash ball as they trace the route of the city’s largest remaining sewer overflow system. While tracing the path of the sewer, this work will also recognize the buried stream that traveled the same path and the City of Kingston’s current steps to separate stormwater and sewer water.

Those interested in participating will meet Sebastian and Matthew at the intersection of Broadway and Foxhall Avenue, where parking will be available along the street.

Keep the Hudson River flowing!
