Conservation Tour Videos by Peoples Gas

Peoples Gas recently highlighted a tour of the Lowber Abandoned Mine Drainage treatment facility given by Rob Cronauer, WCD’s Watershed Program Manager.  The tour was filmed using a 360 degree camera, which captures 360 degree videos using two fish eye lenses.  This allows you to use your cursor, or your smart phone, to scan in all directions as Rob points to various features at the site.  It’s the next best thing to being there!
