The study reported here takes advantage of a set of new technologies for assessing environmental conditions at a landscape scale. The focus of this report is the watersheds of the Catskill Delaware (CD) water supply system located in Region 2 of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA). These watersheds and their reservoirs provide the majority of the drinking water for New York City. High speed computers, satellite imagery and historical databases with extensive spatial and temporal coverage now facilitate analyses of regional issues such as the status of the CD water supply system over time. The purpose of this document is to provide (1) regional and local scale data that will assist land managers, policy makers, and the general public in making informed decisions on environmental and water resources issues; and (2) data analyses that help direct future land cover and land use practices critical to maintaining water quality.
