Hudson Valley Homicide

What do you get when you take the tranquil Hudson Valley and add four serial killers, a mass murderer, and a countless other men and women with guns, knives, and axes, all of whom have homicidal tendencies? You get the fascinating history of unthinkable criminal acts perpetrated against spouses, family members, and complete strangers.

Linda Zimmerman is an author of over 30 books and specializes in topics from the Hudson Valley. While working on local history projects, she kept coming across remarkable criminal cases. Linda highlighted some of these cases in the book Hudson Valley Homicide, and she discusses them on her radio show, Murder in the Hudson Valley, on Hudson River Radio.

New York City's Water System

Adam Bosch, will discuss how the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) operates, maintains and protects the largest municipal water supply in the United States. The talk will also include a special look at the $1 billion Delaware Aqueduct Bypass Tunnel project, the largest repair in the 176-year history of the City's water supply. The water supply is considered a marvel of modern engineering. Its system of reservoirs and aqueducts supplies 1 billion gallons of water each day to 8.6 million people in New York City and another 1 million people in the counties of Westchester, Putnam, Orange and Ulster. The programs that protect its reservoirs in the Catskills are considered a worldwide model for protecting the quality of water at its source.

Adam Bosch is director of public affairs for the NYC DEP. In that role, Adam is charged with broadly sharing information about the City's water supply with members of the public, local journalists, elected officials, and through education programs. Before joining DEP in 2012, Adam was a journalist in New York for more than a decade. His reporting earned five Associated Press awards for investigative reporting, breaking news coverage and public service.
