Hitting Bottom

Drought conditions have lowered the level of Fishkill Creek considerably, as seen in photos taken in 2019 and last week. Beacon City Administrator Chris White says the city’s reservoirs have fallen below 60 percent capacity, triggering restrictions on water usage. Cold Spring renewed its state of emergency on Aug. 25 when its reservoirs fell to 45 percent capacity.
