NYC gets their water from very long very old aqueducts that lead way upstate. Given the recent reports of decay in some of those major tunnels I hope Jersey can provide supply in the event of a major collapse due to poor maintenance practices.

NJ is experiencing a drought.

http://www.nj.gov/dep/drought/


"For the first time in 15 years state environmental officials have declared a drought warning for central, northern and coastal northern New Jersey.

After months of below-average rainfall, the drought watch that had been in effect for months was ramped up to a warning at the end of last week.

The affected counties are Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren."

Well, NYC is building a third tunnel.

However, DiBlasio postponed construction.

But stuff is still getting done.

I guess it should be finished by 2025.
