New York Ice Water - The Ashokan

The Ashokan Reservoir is one of the sources of water for New York City. 

A huge engineering project which occurred in the early 1900's.   Several towns were flooded, and the construction of the reservoir resulted in multiple law suits from local residents.  

Because of terrorist concerns very few activities are permitted on the reservoir and some of the roadways that cross it are now closed.  This picture was taken from a roadway that is now a hiking and biking trail.
