“The Battle for Water: One Big City and Many Little Towns,” a one-hour audio documentary by local producer Nancy Burnett, tells the story of the epic battle between New York City and towns in the Catskills which supply more than 90% of the City’s water. This classic story of conflict resolution is told by eight key participants who negotiated the landmark 1997 NYC Watershed Memorandum of Agreement, which has attracted international attention as a model of how to balance environmental protection and economic development.
