Wrote Dwight Garner in the New York Times, "Every morning in this newspaper you can, if you dare, check the level of New York City's reservoir system, which supplies our fresh water, more than a billion gallons a day."

More: "This sprawling upstate network has kept up with the city's demands for more than a century. This week it's at about 80 percent of capacity — not bad but below normal. A writer could begin a buzzard-black apocalyptic novel with a scientist noticing levels are falling."
