  • Gilboa Dam unharmed by rainfall from Hurricane Irene

    Gilboa Dam, which endured record high water levels created by Hurricane Irene, suffered no damage and is structurally sound, according to a full engineering inspection by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection.

    One day after residents downstream of the dam were ordered to evacuate amid record-high water levels, the waters behind Gilboa Dam continue to recede. At its peak, the water level was a foot-an-a-half higher than the previous record set in January 1996, according to city officials.

    Schoharie Reservoir provides drinking water for New York City. City officials said warning sirens were triggered Aug. 28 by rising water caused by higher-than-predicted rainfall and the loss of electronic monitoring devices at the dam.
