The Bureau of Water Supply manages, operates, and protects New York City's upstate water supply system to ensure the delivery of a sufficient quantity of high quality drinking water.
The Bureau is also responsible for the overall management and implementation of the provisions of the City's $1.5 billion Watershed Protection Program and for ensuring
the City's compliance with the provisions of the Filtration Avoidance Determination. The Community Planning intern will support DEP's effort to comply with the 2017 FAD
requirement to initiate a new program to study the possible wastewater needs of eight communities located in the East of Hudson Watershed.
While DEP will be entering into a contract in late 2019 to offer select municipalities funding grants to evaluate and prepare cost estimates for possible wastewater solutions,
it would be useful to have baseline information about the eight areas so that DEP could effectively evaluate the municipal grant proposals.
The selected intern would gather appropriate information and prepare a memo about each of the communities.
Such information would include water quality data, subbasin delineation, parcel size, land use, soils, and a preliminary wastewater service area.
The candidate will be working predominately in an office although some field work may be required.
Selected candidate will be responsible for adhering to and complying with all environmental, health and safety laws, Agency policies, rules, and regulations.
Assignment is located in Valhalla, NY or Kingston, NY.
This is a paid position.
