From Henk Hofstra, “In April 2007, het Moleneind, a road in Drachten, The Netherlands, is painted blue to symbolise the water. It is 1000 meters long and 8 meters wide. It was created to form an urban river and recreate the path of a waterway that used to be where the road currently runs. They will start to dig a new canal here in 2008. The text WATER IS LEVEN is written on the blue road. The water will bring back life again in the centre of Drachten.”
I would love to see this done at Turcot bringing the Riviere Saint Pierre back to life, if only symbolically, for a little while. Anyone interested in this kind of idea should email me at email@example.com
