READ MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Approximately 95% of New Yorkers receive their drinking water from public water supplies, including: rivers, streams and lakes. A number of these bodies of water are impaired or have threats that impact their current designated use. These waters face a variety of threats introduced by humans uses including pollution from urban runoff, municipal waste water, agricultural runoff, stream bank erosion and much more. Through this program, we hope to strengthen watershed support networks in New York, and increase the capacity of communities to address watershed management issues.
