We will protect and preserve New York City's water from contamination, the risks of aging infrastructure, and the impacts of climate change.
Challenges & Opportunities
Water is one of our most precious resources and must be valued and managed wisely. Safeguarding this invaluable natural resource while delivering high-quality drinking water, wastewater services, and stormwater management to residents of New York City requires a holistic approach to water management.
We will manage our drinking water supply to maintain its world-renowned quality and will manage our wastewater treatment, stormwater management, and drainage systems to improve the quality of our local waterways and beaches, as well as ensure every neighborhood receives a high level of infrastructure services.
