SIGNIFICANCE OF RONDOUT RESERVOIR:
1- Water is diverted from the Cannonsville, Pepacton and Neversink Reservoirs to Rondout Reservoir.
2- The water in Rondout is dedicated for NYC use only.
3- Rondout’s capacity is not considered in drought curves; accordingly negatively impacts releases for the fishery.
4- Capacity of Rondout is 49.6 billion gallons; reservoir is consistently kept at or near capacity.
5- At current NYC consumption (which has been declining over the past four years) Rondout alone maintains enough water to fully service NYC for seven months.
Cannonsville 95.7 Billion Gallons
Pepacton 140.2 Billion Gallons
Neversink 34.9 Billion Gallons
Rondout (Not Counted) 49.6 Billion Gallons
