Abstract: Water systems in many cities particularly in the Northeastern section of the United States are very old. With lack of proper and timely maintenance of the distribution network systems, incidence of main breaks are increasing at high rates in many cities. Many large, old cities are now faced with a big task of rehabilitation of distribution mains. Facing this task of rehabilitation of water systems of the State of New York, the State passed the Water Resources Management Strategy Act (Article 15, Title 29, New York State Environmental Conservation Law) of 1984. The law stipulates that the statewide strategy shall be composed of substrate water resources management strategies. These strategies are discussed.
