Schenectady County to lift travel restrictions

Officials urging water restrictions to continue until further notice

Schenectady County is still under a state of emergency until further notice, but county officials are lifting travel restrictions at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30.

County officials said power outages continue and some streets remain closed and urge residents to drive cautiously.

County officials are continuing countywide emergency water restriction until further notice.

Municipalities may need to shut down water systems due to major flooding, which would use stored water reserves. There are no reports of any water systems being shut down. The restriction is an effort to maintain the highest level of reserves until flood waters recede and systems are online. Water use should be limited to drinking, food preparation and sanitary concerns only.
