People living in the Catskill/Delaware watersheds voluntarily protect New York City’s water. As watershed stewards they understand that what happens in their homes and on their land directly impacts people that live and work in New York City.
As watershed stewards they are aware of the things that could potentially harm the watershed. Through the use of conservation easements, farming and forestry planning, septic & stream management programs they protect the precious watershed.
