Security Camera Installation Shuts Recreation Path For A Day

May 8, 2018

The recreation path atop New Croton dam will be closed Tuesday as the New York City Department of Environmental Protection finishes installing security cameras.

The camera installation is part of an effort to bolster security at key spots within New York City’s water supply system. Several security cameras have already been installed at New Croton Dam in Westchester County, and the work finishes Tuesday. Similar cameras have been installed at other reservoirs, dams and treatment facilities to improve 24-hour monitoring and ensure the security of the water supply for 9.6 million New Yorkers.
