Water company Suez submitted a proposal in June for New York to buy up to 5 million gallons of water a day from New Jersey’s largest reservoir and send it to the Empire State. The current drought is complicating matters.
The U.S. Monitor declared the drought in Bergen County “severe” and “moderate” in the rest of northern New Jersey. The state DEP earlier this month expanded a drought watch to include all but three southern New Jersey counties.
