New York City is once again dumping millions of gallons a day of turbid water from its Ashokan Reservoir into the Lower Esopus Creek. This reaches the Hudson River, too – an important source of drinking water. The wildlife, the communities and the river should not have to bear this burden. And with climate change, we can expect this to happen more and more often. Right now is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to demand alternative solutions to bring clean water to New York City’s tap.
Join Riverkeeper for an information and free webinar to learn about what you can do now through June 16 to help call on the state DEC to improve the management of the reservoir, long term. A question and answer period will be included.
This webinar is designed for residents, activists, officials, people who enjoy the creek and those who drink NYC's tap water – anyone who wants to make a difference.
Registration required. We will make a recording of this webinar available for those who are not able to join us following the event.
