Built between 1837 and 1842, the Old Croton Aqueduct was New York City's first water supply system. It replaced the inadequate wells, springs, and ponds used until then. Drawn from the Croton River in Westchester County, the abundant clean water helped fuel a population boom and remained in service until 1958.
