Hello Ms. Meredith,

Thank you so much for your help, and I hope you'll excuse my tardiness in getting back to you. I'm primarily interested in any parts of the municipal water system than may now be the primary responsibility of a non-public entity. I understand New York City utilizes a complex and thoughtful water system, so it may be that there are no segments that have been contracted out by the City, but I hope, if there are, to receive those agreements. I'm happy to try to provide more clarification.

Thanks so much for your help, and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes,
Beryl
