New York City has the largest unfiltered surface water supply in the world. Within the 1,969 square miles tributary to the system's 19 reservoirs and three controlled lakes, are 106 non-City-owned permitted wastewater treatment plants, owned by a wide variety of private, public and municipal organizations. In order to avoid filtration of their 1.3 Billion gallon per day supply, New York City agreed to pay to upgrade and maintain these wastewater treatment plants. This paper discusses the management of this $400 Million capital program and the associated ongoing $20 Million annual operations and maintenance commitment by the City.
