What effect did the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on America have on the Albany Water Department?

The effect was immediate and far-reaching. After the attack, all Water Department facilities were locked down. The security guard force more than tripled, with round the clock coverage instituted at all installations.

Video surveillance cameras, motion detectors, and other high-tech security measures were put in place to ensure that your water supply is safe and secure. The Water Department works closely with the Albany Police Department, New York State Police, and Federal Bureau of Investigation as well.
