Response to The Jungle 1 (Reply #18)

21. I feel like I'm bragging....

 

and I don't mean to brag or boast when I describe how I live in a region (the Catskills watershed) that provides New York City with unfiltered drinking water.

Water supply testing stations throughout the city reveal a water quality at least as good as most bottled water, often better.

We have unbelievably strict regulation in this area. When I was doing a walk-though of a hiking trail (I volunteer for NY/NJ Trail Conference) I came across a pile of trash about the size of a pickup truck bed.

I called the environmental cops (NYS DEC EnCon P.D.) we dug through the pile, found some notebook pages with names on them.

The cops had the pile removed - by the people that did the dumping - by the end of the weekend.
