If numbers in table columns don't line up, please let me know which device you are using.

As the title indicates, this has numerous (over two dozen) illustrations, some so well drawn they look like photographs.

For people (like me) who grew up in New York City, this is a delightful and valuable book, describing the history of where our water supply came from.

Did you know that 180 years ago, when this book was written, life expectancy in the United States was 25 years? It has more than tripled since then. Wow!

Thank you for helping with this book, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed preparing it.
