Dam Plaza Display Panels Unveiled
New educational display panels were unveiled on Friday at the
Kensico Dam Plaza by Commissioner Joel A. Miele Sr., P.E., of the New York
City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and Angelo Spillo and Elizabeth
Sluder of the Kensico Environmental Enhancement Program (KEEP). DEP and KEEP
collaborated on the panels, which describe construction of the new Kensico
Dam in 1917, the City's upstate Water Supply System, and ways that people
can protect the Kensico Reservoir basin from pollution. Many Westchester communities,
as well as over eight million City residents, rely on the Kensico Reservoir
for their drinking water.
