New York City Department of Environmental Protection Supply Water Announcement

DEP is shutting down the Catskill Aqueduct, one of two large aqueducts that provides water from reservoirs in the Catskills, for the next 10 weeks for a long-planned infrastructure project to upgrade the aqueduct. Water from the Croton System usually accounts for 10 percent of the drinking water distributed to neighborhoods in New York City, but that has been temporarily increased of late to account for approximately 20-30 percent of the City’s drinking water.

Croton water is very high-quality, but it’s different from our reservoirs in the Catskills in a few ways. The geology around the Croton system allows the water to pick up more naturally-occurring minerals, which means the water can be a bit more hard. This also makes it taste better to some people. Croton water is also filtered, which means it passes through a very fine sand that removes impurities from the water.

There are no issues with our water supply. We perform hundreds of tests each day in the reservoir, the aqueduct, the treatment plant, and at nearly 1,000 street-side sampling stations throughout the City. All of those tests show that the water meets or exceeds regulatory limits – in short, the water is very high quality. The earthy/salty taste that people may be experiencing is a chemical change in the water, but not one that poses any threat to health.

Department of Environmental Protection - Water & Sewer Line Insurance

In New York City, residential property owners are responsible for the maintenance of the service lines connecting their properties to the City's water main or sewer lines. If this line is broken or damaged, it is the responsibility of the owner to hire a New York City Licensed Master Plumber to effectuate the repairs. This is a very expensive proposition, sometimes costing thousands of dollars. The New York City Department of Environmental Protection is offering an insurance program for the repair of these lines with American Water Resources. DEP's customers will pay $4.49 per month for the protection of the water line and $8.47 per month for the protection of the sewer line. Customers who choose to join this voluntary program can insure both the water and sewer lines, or just one or the other. Additional information can be obtained by contacting 888-300-3570 or by visiting the American Water Resources website.

An HRA representative from the above program is at the Board Office on the third Thursday of every month from 10 AM-3 PM. Call CB #10 for more information at 718-892-1161.
