Diane Galusha, author of Liquid Assets: A History of New York City’s Water System will be giving an illustrated talk on her newly-updated book at the Time and the Valleys Museum on St. Rt. 55 in Grahamsville on Sunday November 22 at 2 p.m..
The Rondout and Neversink water reservoirs, located in Sullivan and Ulster counties, are part of New York City's Delaware Water Supply System. Built in the 30s and 40s, these reservoirs eliminated five towns and displaced more than 1,500 residents. Diane's book gives an in depth look at all of NYC's systems, starting with the need for water, the old and new Croton Systems, the Catskill System with the Ashokan and Schoharie reservoirs, and the Delaware System which connects four reservoirs to the Delaware Aqueduct, the longest continuous tunnel in the world. The Delaware Water Supply System provides New York City with 50% of its drinking water. An impressive engineering project on a massive scale, the pages of this engrossing book brings to life how the systems were built, the men who built them and the many towns and residents forced to move for the needed land.
Admission to the program is FREE, and refreshments are included. Attendees can pre-order the newly revised book, which will be available spring, 2016. Admission to the Museum's three floors of exhibits is also included.
