Environmental Commitments

Are You Ready for the Resource Revolution?

Climate change, drought, pollution. It’s no longer possible to ignore the perils of our unsustainable relationship with the planet. That’s why we at SUEZ North America believe we must take massive action now. Our rallying cry is the Resource Revolution—a total shift from an economy that over-consumes natural resources to one that optimizes them.

For us, this isn’t just an idea—it’s the philosophy at the heart of our business that we put into practice each and every day. Learn more about how we’re using innovative new technologies and approaches to conserve water, reduce energy consumption, protect local ecosystems, and more.

Recreation & Fishing

SUEZ's Watershed Recreation Program opens the door to a world of outdoor enjoyment. The program, which runs from April 1 through November 30, allows our customers to enjoy the wooded lands surrounding our reservoirs for fishing, hiking or bird watching.

For a nominal application fee, your watershed recreation permit will give you access to four reservoirs – Oradell and Woodcliff Lake in New Jersey and Lake DeForest and Lake Tappan, in Rockland County, New York. Wheelchair accessible areas are located at Woodcliff Lake and Lake Tappan. In addition, the public can enjoy SUEZ’s nature trail. Many miles of trails wind through 90 acres of land adjacent to the Oradell Reservoir featuring many natural points of interest along the way. For recorded information, please call our Watershed Recreation Hotline at 201-767-9300 extension 3208.
