Title : Water-Works The Architecture and Engineering of the New York Water Supply
Authors : Kevin Bone

Description :
The New York City Water Supply has been achieved at a cost, through a massive program of exploration and construction that is still ongoing.
The story of that monumental undertaking is told in Water-Works and illustrated with an astonishing archive of drawings and photographs documenting the design and construction of dams, reservoirs, aqueducts, and tunnels.
Kevin Bone, Gina Pollara, and students from the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at The Cooper Union spent nine years cataloging and preserving this remarkable archive, which is held by the City of New York Department of Environmental Protection.
