PROJECT Ridge Hill Village (Forest City Ratner)
Croton Falls & Diverting Dam (NYCDEP)
Keeping fresh water flowing into New York City and controlling flood waters for communities in upstate New York requires maintenance of the reservoirs and dams located in the watershed miles north of the City. The Croton Falls Dam, 30 miles north of NYC was placed into service in 1911. Yonkers completed reconstruction work to extend the facility’s useful life and increase operational reliability.
Rehabilitation work included improving the weir structures, increasing the size of the spillway channels, replacing the 140-foot Hemlock Road bridge over the spillway, replacing/rehabilitating the gatehouse, gate chambers, intake towers and valve chambers, including all large diameter piping and valves.
