Workers stage mock drill at Jerome Park Reservoir
The Department of Environmental Protection descended on Jerome Park Reservoir Sunday to conduct an emergency drill.
Loud alarms filled the air as emergency workers simulated a response to a chlorine spill. As part of the drill, non-emergency vehicles were blocked off from certain streets.
Local residents say the DEP did a good job informing them about what was taking place, though they hoped officials had reached out to non-English-speaking residents as well.
