Every time a New Yorker turns on a faucet, a hydraulic marvel occurs: a brilliantly engineered system of pipes, water mains, deep rock tunnels, and giant reservoirs stretching 125 miles to the Catskill Mountain watersheds supplies the world's best urban drinking water. Find out how the system works and what we must do to protect it from: Albert E. Appleton, Senior Fellow of the Regional Plan Association and former Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection; Sidney Horenstein, Environmental Educator Emeritus of the American Museum of Natural History; Christopher O. Ward, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and current manager of the New York City water and sewer system.
