The NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) operate and maintain the entire NYC water supply system, which draws water from 19 reservoirs and three controlled lakes from the 1, square-mile total watershed.

The source is the land that surrounds the streams, rivers, lakes and.
