This chart compares normal releases from New York City reservoirs into the Delaware River under the current water release management plan, the FFMP (top line) and under Revision 1 (bottom line), to which the system would revert if New Jersey refuses to vote to extend the FFMP. The distance between the lines represents the difference in releases. Note that under Revision 1, at some times of year conservation releases are only about a quarter of FFMP levels; at no point do they amount to much more than 60% of FFMP levels.
