Despite the rain yesterday and today, a number of  municipalities can't let up on water conservation efforts just yet.
Both the villages of Cold Spring and Nelsonville shared a Facebook post saying the water reserves for both areas, and part of Phillipstown, are around 68 to 70%.
That's across all five drinking water reservoirs.
They say the New York State Drought Taskforce has the region under watch through October, and therefore, all emergency conservation orders will remain in effect.
