New York City is targeting so-called “rat reservoirs,” which are areas where rodent populations survive and thrive, such as subways, sewers and city parks, CBS New York reports.

One City Council member described the rat problem in the Manhattan Valley neighborhood as “an epidemic.”

The city will hire new inspectors and spend $600,000 for rat indexing to track and reduce the rat population, WCBS 880s Paul Murnane reported.
