Watershed Towns

People who live and work in the communities where New York City water originates are happy to help protect that natural resource. But the economic development and well-being of New York City that was enabled by this sacrifice has not always been shared by New York’s upstate benefactors. Today, residents of watershed communities listed below are restricted in what they can do with their property – both personal and professional – because of the need to protect the water supply.
