Join @NRDC at the City of Water Day festival this weekend! Celebrate NY's awesome #water & check out the activities!

New Yorkers depend on water for nearly everything - from drinking and cooking, to fishing and swimming, to washing dishes. In a state with nearly 1,850 miles of coastline, thousands of lakes, rivers and bays, and two of the last municipal drinking water supplies in the nation that don’t require filtration (NYC and Syracuse), protecting our water resources is critical to New York's economy, environment, and health. In celebration of all that water provides for us, the Metropolitan Water Alliance (MWA) is hosting the 4th annual City of Water Day festival this Saturday, July 16 at Governors Island, NYC and Liberty State Park, NJ. NRDC is committed to preserving and revitalizing our waters and will be represented at the festival on Governor’s Island. We’ll be celebrating our precious resource and educating folks on some of the most critical issues facing New York’s water today...
