"Operating and Maintaining the Greatest Waterworks in America"
Adam Bosch will describe how New York City operates, maintains and protects the largest municipal water supply in the United States, with a special look at the largest repair project, currently underway, in the 175-year history of the City's water supply. Its reservoirs and aqueducts supply more than 1 billion gallons of water daily to 8.5 million people in New York City and to another 1 million in surrounding counties, including Westchester.
Adam Bosch is director of public affairs for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. His previous work in journalism earned five Associated Press awards for investigative reponorting, breaking news coverage and public service. He also teaches journalism at SUNY New Patlz.
The event is free and open to the public and will be held at The Warner Library, Tarrytown NY.
