I find it interesting that people that like to use foul languge and/or use personal attacks have no problem drinking water that will be open to more contamination. Filth enjoys filth.

Seriously, why does the Jersey Journal continue to print this woman's lies? Why are her editorials not line by line fact checked? Why is she allowed to have even a fraction of the clout she does in this city?

There’s no such thing.

And the water is not just filtered, it’s treated with a shit ton of chemicals.

Can anyone recall a change of any kind that Yvonne was FOR? Whatever it is, she's against it!

And people will be taking their dogs on the trails, sorry, we have a reservoir for open space in JC for recreation. I want clean water even before it is clean by filters.

They're working with the Open Space State Institute. Ensuring clean water is part of their mission. They already protect watersheds all over the Eastern US.

It's a conservation agency, not a party boat operator.

Are you even trying anymore?

Once more, with feeling:

Jersey City already allows hiking on the buffer lands of its reservoirs.

The water is purified AFTER IT LEAVES THE RESERVOIR.


There is no downside here. They aren't opening a beach for public access. The water won't be impacted. A big chunk of JC's water supply already allows this kind of access.

Hello? McFly?

The water is purified AFTER it is drawn from the reservoir.

Allowing hikers will not, in any way shape or form, result in any contamination.

Oh, and guess what? Jersey City also gets water from Splitrock Reservation, which... wait for it... allows exactly this kind of open access on its buffer lands. It has lots of hiking trails nearby, and allows fishing.

I've hiked up there, it's quite nice. You should check it out.

You can't really believe that analogy makes any sense, can you? You're smarter than that!

Only a person with the makeup of JSleeze approves of drinking water that has been contaminated by human contact. Somethings should be separated in life, people should not wander in rooms where surgeries are being preformed and they should be away from public drinking water.

We have Liberty State Park, Braddock Park, and Lincoln Park which have trails. This will benefit people from outside JC and the more contact with people the more exposure to human waste.

My family has homes upstate NY that has rivers that feed the Ashokian reservoir, we all spend out summers swimming in them, the farmers have cows that do the same. Its not an issue. Open it up.

What you're saying is beyond absurd.

1) The reservoir is huge. You'd have to dump entire tanker trucks to "contaminate" it.

2) The water is purified after it leaves the reservoir. It's not going to get contaminated by hikers.

3) The Rockaway River feeds into the reservoir. It's publicly accessible... including at a park about 300 yards away from the reservoir.

4) Numerous reservoirs have open space and hiking nearby... and don't result in OMG NO TERRARIST ATTACKS GAAAAAHHHH!!!

There is no terrorist threat. That's beyond absurd.

Dogs pose no threat to the reservoir. It's open space, fer cryin' out loud. All sorts of animals and birds and insects are in the area.

I live in JC. I hike all over northern NJ. I'll benefit, just like I've benefitted from so many other natural spaces opened to hikers. So will many other New Jersey residents... who, last I checked, are paying to educate our kids. Not only is it the right thing to do, it's beneficial for the city, as it builds a little good will.

This is all upside.


I have no idea what your real agenda is here, but now that you've brought this to my attention, I plan to support it. Thanks!

The Boonton Reservoir is fenced off and should remain that way. I don't want access to terrorist or just to people who walks their dogs and decides their dog should be in the reservoir. We do have Reservoir 3 in JC for recreational purposes. Besides this would not benefit JC in any way since Boonton is not closeby.

The reservoir is filled by the Rockaway River and its tributaries, all of which have massive exposure to any recreational activity that the reservoir would see. The water is filtered and sanitized in Boonton before it enters the aqueduct.

Open the reservoir!
