NYC DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION PLANS TEST OF UPGRADED RELEASE WORKS AT NEW CROTON DAM AND VINTAGE DAM TOO...

Email blast from the Village of Croton-on-Hudson - Valve testing will happen at the dam from May 15-18

DEP recently completed $13.4 million project to upgrade century-old release works

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced that it will test the upgraded release works at New Croton Dam during four days from May 15-18. While the new release works are tested, the flow of water within the Croton River will increase and fluctuate throughout the day. To ensure public safety, DEP has shared information about the test with local elected officials, police and emergency responders, local journalists, angling and boating groups, and members of the public through social media and other outlets.
