Saugerties: Water Supply May Be Inadequate for Additional Development

Presentation by hydrologist shows an inadequate water supply for Saugerties development. Comparing similar area watersheds that have empirical data reveals 1.8 million gallons per day figure used by Saugerties officials to be flawed. If Kings Highway water district opens as planned there will be water shortages.

Saugerties: Data reports inaccurate monitoring of Saugerties' water supply.

Data reports inaccurate monitoring of Saugerties' water supply.

Saugerties' Blue Mountain Reservoir "cannot supply adequate water for additional development".

The information presented at last night's public meeting was non-biased and thorough. The conclusion of the report performed by Paul Rubin, president of HydroQuest:

The 1.8 million gallons of water per day that has been used to support expansion is based on a water value metering, NOT on empirical data. In other words, the 1.8 figure is baseless and inaccurate. 

There has NEVER been a study performed based on historical data. Therefore when severe times of drought [eventuality] occur, there will be NO water for those businesses.

A more accurate [though optimistic] figure is 1.2 million gallons per day which would suggest that another source for water is needed if Kings Highway and other development is to have adequate water volume.

Not acting upon this new data would lead to law suits and severe consequences for those of us who receive our water from the Blue Mountain Reservoir.

Leland flies at Sky Dive The Ranch in Gardiner

From the safety of earth I watch my son jump

As my son Leland gets prepared to skydive I can't imagine a more beautiful day. The sky is so blue with just a few clouds here and there. Gardiner, New York is a beautiful Hudson Valley town near New Paltz. Skydive The Ranch is the place where my oldest will take the plunge, jumping from a plane over 13,000 feet up in the sky. It's a gift from his mother and I for his 21st B-Day. Here are some of more photos that I took standing with feet firmly on the ground.
