Spring To Spigot
For years, when members of the public were asked where their water comes from, they have answered “the tap.” While not inaccurate, this answer ignores the very real work and concerns of our municipal water system, and all the people that make the taps run. Spring to Spigot is intended to showcase the interconnectedness of our Albany Water System, using a visual framework to follow a drop of water from groundwater to stream to reservoir, through treatment and use, and back into the wider ecosystem. As the planet changes, remembering these connections becomes ever more important, as it can inform our future decisions on everything from resource use to equitable distribution. Everything comes from somewhere. Click The Link To View The Video: https://vimeo.com/798230935/1b14cf3702
