DEP is looking for bright, motivated, and inspired young talent to share our commitment to preserving and protecting NYC’s water supply and making New York City more sustainable. The internship program will give students an in-depth work experience that supports our core functions while also providing a broad overview of our responsibilities and operations through site visits, seminars, and projects.

My internship gave me an opportunity to see what many New Yorkers never get to see and experience.
