This week’s predicted thunderstorms, courtesy of the remnants from Tropical Storm Issac, may be just what the Catskills need.
The region has been so parched in recent weeks that the Town of Andes issued an advisory asking residents to conserve water. Portions of Delaware County, including Andes, have been experiencing abnormally dry weather. “
We don’t want people to panic, but the water table is low,” said Andes Supervisor Marty Donnelly “We’re asking them to conserve water now, so we won’t have a problem later.”
