Agency Indicators 2022: Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is responsible for managing and conserving the water supply for more than 8.5 million people in New York City and 1 million upstate New Yorkers. DEP distributes more than one billion gallons of clean drinking water and collects 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater on a daily basis through a vast network of pipes, regulators, and pumping stations. DEP’s work is critical to the continued remediation of New York’s waterways and ensures the harbor continues to be a safe place for recreation for New Yorkers. In order to protect water coming in and out of the City, DEP oversees one of the largest capital construction programs in the region, which includes new water tunnels from upstate reservoirs and new treatment plants. DEP is also responsible for reducing air, noise, and hazardous materials pollution. DEP is unique because it is the only Construction agency that does work in upstate New York, serving more than 70 upstate communities in counties such as Ulster, Orange, Putnam and Westchester. DEP performs an essential service for all residents, by protecting their health and the environment.
