"Numerous activities during all phases of natural gas development have the potential to contaminate groundwater or surface water supplies. Fracturing operations in proximity to DEP infrastructure could compromise water quality and potentially damage infrastructure. High levels of water withdrawals during periods of hydrologic stress could impact reservoir operations and impair water supply reliability.

Effective regulation, inspection programs, inter-agency coordination, and regional planning could reduce the risk of such impacts, and with proper protections in place it is possible that some level of natural gas development could occur in or near the NYC watershed without causing substantial adverse impacts to the NYC water supply. However, it is also important to note that risks to the water supply cannot be eliminated entirely, and that water quality incidents (e.g. spills, leaks) should be anticipated. While such events may not pose a direct or immediate public health threat, they can be expected to require a rapid operational response, and they may reduce public confidence in NYC’s unfiltered water supply. Overall, the pace of gas well development in the region and the ability of regulatory agencies to manage the process will have a substantial influence on the resulting level of risk to the NYC water supply system."
