A Message to Glasco Water District Customers



Please read the message about the new Sensus meters and the automatic water meter reading system that is being deployed.  The new meters:

  • Address the problem that the current meter exceed 2014 EPA standards for lead content
  • Only transmit twice per year, when triggered by remote reading devices to obtain meter readings.  There has been miscommunication and confusion, involving comparisons to "smart" electric meters, which transmit almost continuous signals.

Hudson River Fish Advisory

Hudson River Fish Advisory
As the summer season peaks so does consumption of fish caught in our local rivers, lakes and streams. But there are health risks associated with consuming fish from area waters -- especially for women and children. In the Hudson River, the greatest risk to health is consuming fish contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
As a result, the New York State Department of Health has issued a fish health advisory that includes the Saugerties portions of the river.  For the Lower Hudson (from the Rip Van Winkle Bridge at Catskill to the New York City Battery) women under 50 and children under 15 are advised not to consume any fish caught in this section of the Hudson River.
This includes striped bass, white perch, largemouth bass, bluefish, and carp, among other species. To download a PDF of the complete advisory and map, click here.
