The supply comes from Florence Creek, 22 miles north of the city. A 20-inch main conveys the water. The watershed contains 17 square miles, very sparsely settled and the danger from contamination is slight. There is an unusual amount of precipitation in that section of New York State, and in the dryest year of recent times, the rainfall was 41.28 inches.
