thumbThe Catskill Aqueduct, part of the New York City water supply system, brings water from the Catskill Mountains to Yonkers where it connects to other parts of the sytem. It begins at the Ashokan Reservoir in Olivebridge, New York, in Ulster County. It then heads south, flowing toward Orange County, New York, and then crosses underneath the Hudson River to Putnam County, New York. The aqueduct transports water from Ashokan as well as the Schoharie Reservoir, which feeds into Ashokan. From the Ashokan, the aqueduct traverses in a southeasterly direction through Ulster, Orange, and Putnam, counties. It crosses below the Hudson River bed at Storm King Mountain in Orange county. It crosses into Putnam county on the east side of the river at Breakneck Mountain.
The aqueduct then enters Westchester County, New York, and flows to the Kensico Reservoir, which also receives water from the City's Delaware Aqueduct. It continues from the Kensico reservoir and terminates at the Hillview Rese (from [www.wikipedia.org](http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catskill_Aqueduct).
