The primary objective of the NYC Water campaign is to promote NYC tap water: to encourage New Yorkers to drink more tap water and be aware of the impact  bottled alternatives have on our environment, and to increase public investment and pride in our historic water infrastructure. NYC Water is the synthesis of efforts across the following City agencies:


NYC Department of Environmental Protection
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection manages the City’s water supply, providing more than one billion gallons of water each day to more than nine million residents throughout New York state through a complex network of 19 reservoirs, three controlled lakes and 6,200 miles of water pipes, tunnels, and aqueducts. DEP is also responsible for managing storm water and treating wastewater throughout the City. DEP also manages Citywide water conservation programs.
