Cen­tral Hud­son to hold siren test on Oct. 31

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

Cen­tral Hud­son Gas and Elec­tric Corp. is con­duct­ing a siren test for the Stur­geon Pool Hy­dro­elec­tric plant on Oct. 31, be­gin­ning at about 9:30 a.m. and last­ing ap­prox­i­mately one minute.

The test will be held in con­junc­tion with Ul­ster County Emer­gency Man­age­ment. The sirens are lo­cated in the up­per por­tion of the water­way in the vicin­ity of the dam, and will be au­di­ble to res­i­dents near and down­stream along the Wal­lkill River and Ron­d­out Creek.

In the event of an ac­tual emer­gency, res­i­dents in this area should pro­ceed im­me­di­ately to higher el­e­va­tions and away from the river and creek banks.

The Stur­geon Pool plant is one of the orig­i­nal hy­dro­elec­tric fa­cil­i­ties pro­vid­ing elec­tric­ity to the Hud­son Val­ley. The fa­cil­ity is con­tin­u­ously mon­i­tored and in­spected reg­u­larly, and has been con­tin­u­ously main­tained since its con­struc­tion.

The dam is reg­u­lated by the New York State Depart­ment of En­vi­ron­men­tal Con­ser­va­tion.
