The NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) enriches the environment and protects public health for all New Yorkers by providing 1.1 billion gallons of high quality drinking water, managing wastewater and stormwater, and reducing air, noise, and hazardous materials pollution. DEP is the largest combined municipal water and wastewater utility in the country, with nearly 6,000 employees. DEP's water supply system is comprised of 19 reservoirs and three controlled lakes throughout the system’s 2,000 square mile watershed that extends 125 miles north and west of the City.
The Bureau of Engineering Design & Construction (BEDC) currently has $10B of active construction contracts and another $15B of planning and design contracts under the responsibility and management of the bureau. The projects BEDC implement allow DEP as a whole to continue to operate and maintain an exemplary water supply system.
BEDC’s In-House Design (IHD) Division consists of eight engineering sections corresponding to the respective engineering functions they perform. This includes the Architectural, Civil, Structural, Process Mechanical and HVAC, Water Tunnel Structural, Water Tunnel Mechanical Systems, CAD, and Electrical sections plus two additional non-engineering sections, Quality Assurance and Quality Assurance Lab. Each engineering section prepares design and construction documents including engineering plans and specifications for the construction of water supply, sewer and wastewater treatment infrastructure, which are of the highest priority for the Agency.
The Electrical section prepares engineering documents for construction of the most complex electrical power distribution, instrumentation, process controls, communications, lighting, fire safety and security systems undertaken by In-House Design.
