Mods - reposted here, since it belongs in the Loing Island forum
Are you sure you didn't mean Lawn Guyland?...

Anyway, take a look at this:

As you can see, Long Island gets our water from the ground called aquifers.
I live in Nassau County and have been using bottled water for drinking ever since MTBE was detected in the ground water supply near our water district and even though the officials say it's safe to drink.

How much water do you consume that you can't carry a couple of gallons of a good quality bottled water for potable use? That's what we do on our charters in the BVI as they recommend not drinking the water from your tanks.
