The authors gratefully acknowledge the following foundations for their steadfast support of NRDC's New York Urban Program and its efforts to help protect the New York region's drinking water supply:

The Clark Foundation

We also extend a hearty thank you to NRDC's 400,000 members, without whom this report and our other wide-ranging urban activities would not be possible.

We thank our NRDC colleagues for their cooperation in helping to shape and produce this report. Mark Izeman, our partner on New York drinking water issues, provided indispensable advice and excellent editing. Jennifer Burns Kessler, Ryan Southard and Peggy Alevrontas handled the word processing and production details with skill. La-Verne Parris and Sharene Azimi, under the watchful eye of Alan Metrick, were of great help with design and media outreach. Finally, we deeply appreciate the help of others outside of NRDC who provided thoughtful and constructive suggestions on the drafts they kindly reviewed.
