Who We Are:
New York’s Delaware County Department of Watershed Affairs was created in 1999 to assist the communities with watershed issues and to collaborate with state and federal agencies to resolve polution issues of the Cannonsville and the Pepacton Reservoirs.
A large portion of the watersupply that feeds New York City comes from the watershed area located within 1,900 square miles in the Catskill Mountains and the Hudson River Valley.
Working with the local communities and all interested stakeholders, the Department of Watershed Affairs works to increase awareness of the New York City Watershed located within the boundaries of Delaware County and to preserve the environment and economy of the communities within the watershed.
