NYC Watershed Protection is a Partnership effort

Working with Partners

Various organizations, institutions and government agencies are directly implementing programs under the Filtration Avoidance Determination (FAD) and the 1997 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). These environmental and economic partnership efforts are protecting water quality and providing funding and other assistance to watershed communities.
