The majestic Catskill Mountains provide a sweeping backdrop to this exciting series, which has made its home at HITS-on-the-Hudson since 2004.

Soil2O is an environmentally friendly, non-toxic and non-corrosive cross-linked co-polymer. It is easily mixed into standard water tankers with our Soil2O Eductor System and effectively mitigates fugitive dust (which chlorides, oils or lignin treatments alone cannot do), and also anchors road dust 'fines' in place to alleviate or minimize potholes, washboarding and more.
