Contributed Photo Contributed Photo A team of watershed protection partners from the Catskills traveled to Wales in March to share their experience in preserving water quality with staff members and directors of Welsh Water. Catskill Watershed Corporation Communications Director Diane Galusha, Watershed Agricultural Council Chairperson Sally Fairbairn, and Adam Bosch, Public Affairs director for the NYC DEP Bureau of Water Supply, made the trip at the invitation of the non-profit company which supplies water to three million people.
