Will the innovative 1997 Watershed Agreement succeed in protecting New York City's drinking water into the future? Three new ground-breaking studies take stock of the Agreement's performance. They report on water quality in the watershed; implementation of watershed protection measures; and the Agreement's impacts on the upstate economy.

Speakers: Cathleen Breen, Watershed Protection Coordinator, New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG); Joan Hoffman, PhD, Professor of Economics, John Jay College of Criminal Justice; Bernard W. Sweeney, PhD, Director, Stroud Water Research Center
