NEW CITY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Rockland County Executive Ed Day is pleading with residents to conserve water voluntarily.
As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported Thursday, Lake DeForest is at 80 percent and dropping. The water is receding, and the rocky shoreline is growing.
“We have not been getting a lot of rainfall, so right now it’s down a bit,” Day said. “It’s not critical at this point, but we don’t to wait ’til it’s critical. We want to do everything we can do to maintain the reservoir levels up as much as we can.”
