Flood Threat?

Some think floods on the Delaware are affected greatly 
by the amount of water released from water reservoirs 
in upstate New York--others say...not so much.

Congressmen from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania wrote a joint letter to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on May 18th, asking that he "keep flooding issues in mind while managing the city's reservoir system." They want the mayor to release the water little by little, rather than all at once, adding to flood risk down river--in other words--down here.

Read all about it in Bill Wichert's article in the Express Times

And learn all you'll ever want or need to know about flooding in our area on the Nurture Nature web site, where they are dedicated to flood education in the community.
