Historic Ten-Year Filtration Avoidance Determination Agreement Announcement
 
Mayor Bloomberg and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Steve Johnson announce the issuance of a 10-year Filtration Avoidance Determination (FAD) by the EPA for the City’s Catskill/Delaware drinking water supply system. This recent FAD acknowledges the world-class quality of New York City’s drinking water system by doubling the length of previous FADs, and contains the most comprehensive watershed protection program for any City in the world.  New York City leads a select group of five large cities in the country that are not required to filter their drinking water.
