Past - City planners moved upstate citizens out of their homes to make room for the Croton Reservoir. This was bad for the upstate dwellers, but a likely necessary move to sustain NYC.
Present - The Dam moves 300 gallons of water a day through to the Croton Aqueduct, and down towards NYC. This system helps the city prosper and remain sustained, making our city better.
Future - The Reservoir's infrastructure undergoes almost constant repair, so that in the future it will continue to work as necessary. The problem of the invasive population of Hydrilla plants along the front of the dam is undergoing planning to be solved. These solutions will
make the water supply system a better one.
