The project involves the New York City Department of Environmental Protection proposing to expand its Waterfowl Management Program beyond the current program at Kensico Reservoir to five additional City reservoirs: Rondout, Ashokan, West Branch, Croton Falls, and Cross River. The objective of the program is to minimize fecal coliform bacteria (FCB) loads to the reservoirs that result from waterbirds roosting on the reservoirs during the migratory and winter seasons. The program would include avian (bird) population monitoring, avian deterrence measures, targeted avian dispersion activities, reproductive management methods, and, on rare occasions, removal methods.
The five reservoirs included in the proposed expansion are located in the following Towns and Counties:
Rondout - Neversink (Sullivan), Wawarsing (Ulster)
Ashokan - Hurley, Marbletown, Olive (Ulster)
West Branch - Carmel, Kent (Putnam)
Croton Falls - Carmel, Southeast (Putnam), Somers (Westchester)
Cross River - Bedford, Lewisboro, Pound Ridge (Westchester)
