I’ve heard him reffered to as the man who saved the bagel. Al Appleton, who helped save NYC water system in the 1990’s, sat down with me during the TBLI conference in Paris last month. This is his story.

We Discuss:

  • The crisis of the 90’s
  • How he got the job
  • A unique way to conserve
  • The result
  • Wetlands near JFK airport
  • Other conservation projects
  • New Orleans
  • Big Corporations and their behavior
  • The future
