The Visitor Center at Newtown Creek tells the story of New York City’s water and wastewater systems. Located at the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (WTP), one of New York City’s 14 treatment plants, the Visitor Center features DEP employees who narrate the cycle of water from water supply to distribution, wastewater treatment, and harbor water quality. This fascinating new facility will help you learn about the one billion gallons of water New Yorkers use every day, the thousands of miles of pipes, aqueducts, and water mains, and the responsibilities, through the eyes of our dedicated workforce, to serve New Yorkers.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, all visitors will receive complimentary Hershey’s Kisses!
