Abstract: In the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area, water emergencies becoming more frequent events because of increases in water demand and lack of new supply additions. The water supply problem is further complicated by the conflict between purveyors obtaining supply from the same sources. While water conservation practices help to stretch the existing supply, the regional approach of water resources management is found to be the best way of coping with water shortage, without committing huge amounts of capital expenditure.
