The New York City Department of Environmental Protection will install security cameras along a reservoir in Ulster County. 

DEP officials announced Thursday that the installation is part of a system-wide effort to bolster security at key spots for New York City’s water supply system. The cameras will be placed along the dam and dikes at the Ashokan Reservoir. The department’s Bureau of Police & Security will oversee the installation of video cameras on poles that have already been installed along the reservoir. Similar cameras have been installed at other DEP reservoirs, dams and treatment facilities. One lane of a recreation path along the Reservoir will be closed periodically for the installation work, which is expected to begin early in October and finish by the end of the year.
