Signs Going Up Along Watershed Highways
Commissioner Joel A. Miele Sr., P.E., of the New York City Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced today that new signs will
be going up along major roads at entry points in the watersheds of
the City's upstate reservoirs.
Miele displays the new watershed signs.
Commissioner Miele said, "The new signs were designed through
the cooperation of citizens, civic organizations, municipalities and
counties in the watershed, as well as the Catskill Watershed Corporation,
the Watershed Protection and Partnership Council, and the New York
State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). In keeping with concerns
of watershed residents, the new signs are smaller in scale than the
NYSDOT standard and bear a simple message. I want to thank everyone
who contributed to creation of the signs, particularly with a special
thanks to the State Department of Transportation for installing them."
