The story of Croton Reservoir, just north of New
York City, is a progressive story of extraordinary engineering
achievement over a 155-year period. The story of the Reservoir, and
the supply network it feeds, reflects the evolution of the
contemporary urban water supply system. The original system was
heralded as one of the most notable civil engineering triumphs of
the 19th century.
Recent construction and revitalization,
completed in 1992, is no less an achievement in meeting - and
overcoming - formidable engineering challenges.
Company assisted the consulting engineers in the design of sluice
gates, roller gates, and trash racks used in the renovation of the
existing gate house facility (shown above early in the project), and
at the new main gate house.
