As 1980 ended, water supply reservoirs in northern New Jersey were perilously low, causing the governor to declare a water emergency and insist on water rationing. Although the Round Valley Reservoir, a key state reservoir, was about 75% full, it offered no relief to water-short communities because of a lack of interconnecting pipelines. To help the situation over the long term, the North Jersey District Water Supply Commission is planning to build an 80 mgd supply project known as the Two Bridges project.
