    Description

    When New York City suffered a serious water shortage in 1949-50, some of the reservoirs in its water-supply system were drained almost empty. In some places land that had been covered with water for nearly a hundred years was exposed. This provided an unique opportunity for studying sedimentation and erosion problems in this area.
