film

‘Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga’ Screening, 7-9 p.m., Hadley Luzerne Jr./Sr. High School, Alice Harris Auditorium, 273 Lake Ave., Lake Luzerne. The Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council is pleased to announce two public viewings of the recently completed documentary “Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga.” In the spring of 2016, the Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council contracted with Peter Pepe of Pepe Productions (Glens Falls) to create an educational film outlining the fascinating history of the Sacandaga River Valley and its dramatic change in 1930 from a meandering river to the largest reservoir in New York state, capable of holding back nearly 38 billion cubic feet of water. In the early 20th century, disastrous flooding along the Hudson River as well as the need for a guaranteed water supply for industrial facilities led New York state to create the Hudson River Regulating District and gave them the ability to create reservoirs as needed for river regulation and public welfare. The flooding of the Sacandaga Valley was an unpopular but necessary solution. This film tells the story of how the people of the valley had to sacrifice their homes, their farms and their livelihoods for the greater good. It is a story of heartbreak, rebirth and a remarkable engineering project in its own right. There will be two free public viewings of “Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga” at the Alice Harris Auditorium at Hadley-Luzerne High School. The first showing will be on Thursday and the second showing will be on Saturday, Jan. 20, at 7 p.m. There will be a short question-and-answer session after each presentation. Due to space constraints, pre-registration will be required to attend. Please visit www.eventbrite.com and search “Harnessing Nature” to reserve your tickets for these showings.
