Ridgewood Reservoir's creation in detail

Very interesting history of the Ridgewood Reservoir here, from technical details written by an engineer involved in the project. It leads the blogger to conclude:

It is deeply disturbing that the City of New York would ever considering erasing, what is clearly, a very important piece of New York's history. The Ridgewood Reservoir in Highland Park should be celebrated, not turned into artificial turf recreational fields.
