When you sign up, Mountainkeeper staff will reach out to coordinate and provide some simple talking points to make it easy for you to testify.
And never fear--we won't sell, share, or rent your contact information.

To: Members of the Town and Village Boards of Saugerties
As residents of the Village and Town of Saugerties who face an emerging water crisis, we call on you to enact a moratorium on new developments with large water needs until and unless the Village and the Town boards can agree on mechanisms to reliably secure sufficient water sources for our community.
