This report by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection presents New York City's revised Long-Term Watershed Protection Program, submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as the City's application for an extension of the 2002-2007 filtration waiver for the Catskill/Delaware systems. Although many of the programs described in this document are intended to form the basis of the next Filtration Avoidance Determination (FAD) for the years 2007-2012, the City anticipates that they will continue beyond 2012, and their institutionalization with community-based partners and local governments will ensure continued filtration waivers for the Catskill/Delaware systems for years to come.
