There are 5 Reservoirs in the catskill mountains and all are connected by underground pipes. Then they run all the way to NYC with an underground tunnel. In NYC water will go up 6 stories from gravity feed. That is why the water tastes so good in NYC.

I lived in Brooklyn and Manhattan, Brooklyn water is better!

Famous Pizza place opened a rest. upstate, couldn't get the taste right, trucked Brooklyn water in, Pizza heaven again.

The tunnels are leaking, a new tunnel is being built, huge project

Thanks, I was wondering when that new tunnel would be finished. 1970-2020...when it's finished it will be outdated

Now I wonder why Brooklyn water would be better? All comes down the tunnel from catskills. I've fished several of those reservoirs in my time.
