Join the New York State Department of Health for an online public information meeting to learn about the process of reviewing and reissuing New York City’s watershed Filtration Avoidance Determination, and comment on the process.

New York City’s award-winning drinking water critically needs a Filtration Avoidance Determination to ensure the strictest possible protections remain in place to protect New York City’s drinking water source. Filtration of public drinking water supplies should be considered as a last resort to be employed only when an unfiltered water supply poses an imminent threat to public health. Sound watershed protection programs not only safeguard human health and aquatic life but also are vastly more economical than filtration.

Learn more about New York City’s Drinking Water and critical efforts to protect this water source.
