From the water we drink to the water we swim in, it's the community's responsibility to protect this precious resource. Unfortunately, many seemingly innocuous things we do each day - wash our cars, walk our dogs, tend our lawns - can pollute our water. The historic Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was enacted to protect New York City’s drinking water supply. This groundbreaking watershed protection program is protecting drinking water for almost nine million New Yorkers without inhibiting the economic vitality of the watershed communities.
