Catskill mountain water delivered in New York City, in the tremendous volume of 500,000,000 gallons daily, is the plan of the Board of Water Supply of the City of New York. The work extends from Ashokan reservoir, 12 miles west of Kingston, into various boroughs of New York City, a distance approximating 125 miles. The valve-operating and unwatering machinery, necessary for the operation of the aqueduct, is planned to be housed in 53 buildings, located as needed at the headworks and along the line of the aqueduct.
