The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) protects public health and the environment by supplying clean drinking water, collecting and treating wastewater, 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. We deliver 1.1 billion gallons of high quality drinking water per day to 8.3 million New York City residents and more than 1 million people in Upstate New York, and we collect and treat an average of 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater per day. As the steward of more than 29,000 acres of parkland, the Department of Parks & Recreation (DPR) is a recognized leader and innovator of public spaces. The DPR has partnered with the Department of Environmental Protection to construct and maintain green infrastructure systems, primarily in the right of way. These systems combine engineered storm water capture with the natural system of soils and plants, and require particular and specialized care and maintenance. As City Park Workers, the selected candidates will assist in general maintenance work, including edging, seeding, snow removal, cultivating, fertilizing, trimming, sweeping, removal of sediments and raking of litter; clean and maintain facilities including drainage structures; perform minor repair work including but not limited to plumbing, masonry, carpentry, metal work and vehicle and equipment repair; drive vehicles and operate certain other motorized equipment; perform safety checks on facilities and equipment; and may move furniture, climb, and perform other physical activities as required in the performance of assigned duties.
