The Delaware Aqueduct has been leaking 15-35 million gallons of water since the 1990s! To make repairs to the 85-mile aqueduct, it is predicted to take $1.2 billion dollars for structural fixes, $900 million to supply the city with water during the reconstruction period and to be completed by 2022.
