Commissioner Joel A. Miele Sr., P.E., of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has announced that the City has acquired a 509-acre tract known as Lakepointe Woods in Putnam County. The vacant property, located between Dixon and Barrett Hill Roads in Carmel, had previously been proposed for over 100 home sites but now will be managed by the City for watershed protection purposes. The acquisition will protect several thousand linear feet of tributaries to the West Branch Reservoir, as well as the entirety of Lockwood Pond and associated wetland resources.
