Drink Tap Water

New York City has some of the best tap water in the world. Grab your reusable bottle and drink up!

  • Each day, more than 1 billion gallons of fresh, clean water are delivered to NYC from pristine reservoirs in the Catskill Mountains.

  • New York City drinking water is world-renowned for its quality. The Department of Environmental Protection performs more than 900 tests daily, 27,000 monthly, and 330,000 on an annual basis from up to 1,200 sampling locations throughout New York City. This work is in addition to 230,000 tests performed in the watershed.

  • Save money! NYC water is a great deal. At approximately one penny per gallon, it is about 1,000 times less expensive than bottled water!
