Marcy Reservoir Breaching
The Marcy Reservoir, in service from 1915 to 2011, has been replaced
by a Water Storage Tank and is being decommissioned. This will result in the
Reservoir being removed from the NYSDEC list of Regulated Dams and eliminate
significant MVWA inspection and maintenance obligations.
