Behind the Scenes
The Inside Story of the Watershed Agreement
An oral history of the NYC Watershed Negotiations 1990 - 1997
This outstanding series of oral history interviews was conducted in the late 1990s and early 2000s by Nancy Burnett of Nancy Burnett Productions, with assistance from Virginia Scheer. Funded in part by a Watershed Education Grant awarded by the CWC, the project included interviews with 12 participants involved in the negotiations for the NYC Watershed Memorandum of Agreement. The actual recorded interviews may be heard at the Catskill Watershed Corporation offices, 905 Main St., Margaretville, NY. Audio CDs and transcripts of the 12 interviews were sent to 24 public libraries in the West-of-Hudson Watershed, and were placed in the college libraries at SUNY Delhi, SUNY Ulster in Stone Ridge, SUNY College at Oneonta and Sullivan County Community College, Loch Sheldrake as well as in the NYC Department of Environmental Protection Archives (420 East 38th St., NYC), and the Municipal Archives of the City of New York, 31 Chambers St., Room 101, NYC. Transcripts have been added to the collection at the Millstein Division of US History at the New York Public Library, 5th Avenue and 42nd St., New York City.
