The City of Albany is proposing to put an automated sewage treatment plant in Lincoln Park, ruining the ravine in the park that was once a tourist attraction. The plant, officially known as the Beaver Creek Screening and Disinfection Facility will cost $45 million.
Dan will discuss how the proposed plant will work, the location of the plant, how this will affect the Hudson River, the issue of the combined sewage and storm water overflow. He will show photos of the park and postcards of what the ravine and park looked like 100 years ago. Dan has published many articles on his blog, albanyweblog.com, regarding sewer issues in Albany and the Big C pipe.
