About the Water Department

The Village of Nyack Water Department is a self-supporting, public benefit department. It is without taxing powers. Five Water Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor for five-year staggered terms. The only revenue the Department receives is obtained from the sale of water. The Department is nonprofit. All revenue is used for operating expenses, outstanding debt and construction purposes. The Department was established to provide the Village of Nyack’s service area with a safe and abundant supply of water. The Water Treatment Plant is located in West Nyack, New York 10994. Our business office is located at 9 North Broadway, Nyack, New York 10960.

The Village of Nyack Water Department draws water from the Hackensack River. The river begins at Lake Deforest Reservoir, approximately one mile north of our treatment plant. The reservoir has a capacity of five billion gallons of water and, in times of drought, is used to maintain stream flow.
