The 6 ½-mile-long Rondout Reservoir was built in from the late 1930s to early 1950s, to collect clean Catskills drinking water as part of New York City‘s supply network.
Three towns, Eureka, Montela and Lackawack, were removed (including all the buildings, trees and vegetation and cemeteries) and the residents displaced for the building of the reservoir.
In the 1930s and 40s, New York City came to the Catskills and took land they needed to build reservoirs for their expanding water supply system. Thousands of people’s lives changed forever, as they were forced to move away from family and friends and the homes they loved. [Read more…] about 1930s Historic Catskill Farm Expansion Planned
