DELAWARE Aqueduct Bypass

The Water for the Future program has been initiated to address leaks in one of the two main aqueducts that supplies drinking water to New York City and other upstate communities, the Delaware Aqueduct.

Together, through engineering repairs and innovative conservation, we will enjoy the safe, clean, reliable drinking water for generations to come.
