Deep Water: Building of the Catskill Water System is the tale of heroism and heartbreak, political maneuvering, lost villages, brilliant engineering and a power struggle between New York City and the Catskills. Completed in stages between 1915 and 1926, the Ashokan and Schoharie Reservoirs were built by thousands of stonecutters, bridge builders, railroad workers, tunnel diggers and mule drivers. It is the story of a city desperate for pure water and the reluctant rural area that was forced to provide it.
