New York and Water Usage
Water is essential for any city to thrive. Reliable, resilient water access facilitates healthy populations and prosperous businesses. Long Island’s residents and businesses need water for everything from cooking to cleaning, bathing, cooling, irrigation, and more. High demand and population cause Long Island to consume between 130 and 140 gallons per capita every day — 30% to 40% above the national average.
Long Island’s water comes from groundwater aquifers, which usually meet residential and commercial demands, but storms, pollution, dry weather, and overconsumption present massive problems for the city. Groundwater is susceptible to contamination from pesticides, septic systems, and industrial wastewater, especially during a flood. Contaminated aquifers result in clean water scarcities for Long Island’s residents. Many consumers withdraw more water than Long Island’s aquifer systems can supply.
Long Island faces the challenge of finding ways to ensure steady access to clean water for its residents and businesses. Decentralized water systems for Long Island communities can be a path toward net-zero water. NSU provides solutions for water reliability that capitalizes on every gallon in circulation.
