Due to degradation of New Your City's water source areas, their water has dropped below EPA standards. The cost of developing a filtration plant was estimated along with the cost of restoring the watershed's natural purification abilities. The cost of restoring the watershed's natural purification ability was found to be a fraction of what it would cost to construct and maintain a filtration plant. The city is now using funds to purchase and halt development, compensate land owners for restrictions on private development, and to subsidize septic system improvements.
