What’s in the water? describes the impacts
of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on New York City’s water supply. Advocacy partner DCS
is distributing the posters free of charge at
public information sessions, film screenings, conferences, and cultural events related to advocacy work around fracking in New York
City and State, Pittsburgh, and other parts of Pennsylvania. They are also being distributed
to NY state senators and assembly members, schools, and public libraries. A PDF version of the MPP is available for free download on CUP’s and DCS’s websites.
A public launch was held at the Cooper Union, featuring a conversation with former New York State Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Al Appleton and journalist Barry Estabrook. 115 people attended this event, where MPPs were distributed for free. This project received a Core77 Design Award in 2013.
