Water for the Future isn’t just about repairing the Delaware Aqueduct. It’s also about water conservation and being efficient and using our water resources wisely"
We’re using modern science and engineering as well as a tremendous amount of historic data from the engineers who built the water supply system to design the best fix for the Delaware Aqueduct."
New York is one of only five large unfiltered water supplies in the US because of our high quality drinking water. So, looking at quality is a very important part of Water for the Future"
