Interested in clean, affordable NYC drinking water?
If so, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) invites you to join an online public information meeting on October 13th to learn about the protection of New York City’s watershed, and the programs in place that help to keep it clean.
Much of New York City’s water comes from the Catskill/Delaware drinking water system. Unlike most water systems, the quality of that water is good enough that NYSDOH and USEPA have determined that it can remain unfiltered. This Filtration Avoidance Determination, or FAD, is periodically reviewed to ensure that the water still meets the standards. The FAD is being reviewed to make sure it contains the right mix of programs to protect water quality. NYSDOH is seeking public comment and participation to help inform the development of programs for the next FAD.
What does this mean for you? If you drink New York City's water, are part of the watershed area community, or are simply interested in keeping drinking water clean and affordable, the online public information meeting on October 13th will explain the FAD process and will help you learn about how clean drinking water is maintained for New York City. Please join in and make your comments heard.
