article By using clean water resources to treat sewage and cleaning up toxic pollution from oil and gas operations, New York City is one step closer to meeting its ambitious goal to become 100% water- and oil-based in the next 10 years.
The city has long had a tradition of using oil-derived water for its drinking and sanitation services, but now its finally being able to tap into clean water as a means of generating revenue to pay for the infrastructure improvements that have been needed to bring the city up to speed with other major US cities.
Clean water is the cleanest, most efficient and most environmentally friendly way to use water, said Karen Gudwin, executive director of the New York-based nonprofit Clean Water Action, which is pushing the city to implement water-based solutions.
The water is so clean, and the water is being so clean now that you can see it.
But the water has been polluted in other ways, too, including from industrial and chemical operations.
The Clean Water Act, signed by former President Barack Obama in 2016, requires cities and states to use clean water for drinking and municipal services by 2020.
New York, like many major US municipalities, has been working to meet the 2020 deadline and has been testing water in several public spaces.
Gudwain said that although she doesn’t have a timeline on when the city will be able to start using clean drinking water, it is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2021.
New Yorkers have traditionally used their water for household purposes, including showers, toilets and washing machines, but since the beginning of the 20th century, New Yorkers and other Americans have been using their water to flush the toilets and flush their pipes to remove lead from drinking water.
The state’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been monitoring New York’s drinking water since 2010.
The agency found a significant increase in lead-based paint in New York public drinking water sources, such as the New Jersey Aqueduct and New York Public Library’s water supply, between the years 2008 and 2014.
EPA has also been monitoring the city’s drinking-water system, which it says is among the worst in the country.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has been using the city-owned system to monitor the lead contamination and report to the state’s Governor’s Office on how much lead is in the water.
According to the EPA, the lead levels have increased in parts of the city, but not enough to affect public health.
The EPA has been collecting samples and testing water for lead since 2015, and Gudwine said that the agency is working on a timeline for how much time it will take for the water samples to be tested and analyzed.
The results from the water sampling will be sent to the city for testing, and officials expect to have results back in 2021, said Gudwon.
“We are not waiting for the EPA to test it, but we expect that they will have that information by the end of 2021,” she said.
While New York has been taking steps to get water to meet its goals, it still faces a number of hurdles.
One is that there is no way to separate water from contaminants, and there are no easy ways to test for contaminants on municipal waste.
There is also a lot of waste in the city.
For example, it was reported that a recent study from a private company found that there were 3.5 billion gallons of trash and human excrement in New Jersey, according to a report in the New Brunswick Star-Ledger.
The waste includes sewage from municipal buildings, trash from the city and waste from nearby businesses, such the former Biscayne Aquarium and the old city landfill, which have been used for decades.
As a result, New Jersey has the highest number of reported lead contamination cases in the nation, according a 2015 study by the Environmental Protection Administration.
It found that in 2015, more than 4,000 children in the state were tested and had elevated lead levels, according the report.
A 2016 study from the American Academy of Pediatrics found that the number of children tested in New England, which includes New York state, had nearly doubled between 2009 and 2015, due to lead poisoning.
“There is no safe level of lead in drinking water,” said David Dyson, the former New York Attorney General who helped lead the EPA’s work on lead in municipal water.
“If you are drinking your tap water, the risk is too great.”
Dyson was a member of the EPA from 2007 to 2013.
He also served as head of the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and is now a senior fellow at the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
Dyson said he was not surprised that the city is testing its water.
“I was not expecting this to happen, but I thought New York was going to be a leader in this,” he said.
“I think it was a good call, because it is
