Week 1: Water Infrastructure Tour

Source to Estuary kicked off with a whirlwind tour of water infrastructure in and around current-day Troy, New York. Side-by-side below are the two maps we used to ground and guide ourselves as we considered our location within the broader Mahicannituck / Hudson River Watershed (L), and a series of specific locations that related to Troy’s water system (R). The full PDF handout is here.

Below is photo documentation from each stop along the way. Fellows, interns, and mentors took notes about their surroundings and habitat at each site, and participated in a series of “environmental listening exercises” to work on expanding our multisensorial experience and knowledge of each site. We concluded with a discussion about role of water, public space, climate change and recreation at the Riverfront Park in downtown Troy, where we observed the recently re-developed park, seawall, and marina.
