Because of issues involving trespassing on SUEZ property in Emerson, we are taking steps to ensure the safety of the watershed in that area. The entrance to the parking lot at Fishing Gate 3 on Lake View Terrace in Emerson will be locked as of Monday, August 17th. 


However, members of the Watershed Recreation Program will be able to open the lock with their key. We ask participants of the program to please lock the gate after parking your car and remember to lock it again when you leave. Thank you for your cooperation. We hope you are enjoying your access to the watershed.

We are pleased to announce the SUEZ Watershed Recreation Program is open to the public.

All four reservoirs are open for access.



Like you, we are eager to enjoy the watershed again for fishing, hiking and birdwatching. We ask that you please follow the guidelines established in New Jersey and New York for safety in the parks:

•  Wear cloth face coverings or masks when social distancing measures are difficult to maintain

•  Practice social distancing and stay six feet apart, excluding immediate family members, caretakers, household members, or romantic partners

•  No organized activities, sports or picnicking is allowed 

•  Stay home when not feeling well

•  Parking outside of designated areas is prohibited 



Thank you. Enjoy
