Students Embark on Three-week Watershed Trek

To mark the tenth anniversary of the signing of the Watershed Memorandum of Agreement, a pledge to protect the 2,000 square mile watershed that supplies New York City and upstate communities with its fresh water, twelve high school students embarked on a three-week quest to follow the flow of water from the Catskill Mountains to the City's distribution system. The students' trek ended Saturday in Central Park, where they were greeted by friends, family and members of the public, and had a chance to reflect on their long journey.

The Mountaintop to Tap watershed trek was sponsored by DEP, the Stroud Center for Water Research, Hudson Riverkeeper, Catskill Center for Conservation and Development, Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct, and many other partners.
