Putnam Lake Notices

Please be advised that both Warren & Jackson Beaches are closed due to the presence of blue green algae which may contain toxins dangerous to your health and the heath of your pets.

Do not swim or wade in the lake until further notice.

Putnam County has generously offered free use of its swimming facility at Veterans Memorial Park. to all residents of Putnam Lake who are affected by the recent algae bloom related beach closures. Be sure to have your beach bracelets and proof of ID with you if you go. The park is located on Gipsy Trail Rd. in Town of Kent.


Putnam Lake was designated as an “impaired waterbody” due to excessive nutrients (phosphorus), algae, and poor water clarity, which could impact recreational uses in the lake. Total phosphorus concentrations in Putnam Lake are 50 percent greater than the average concentration found throughout the Lower Hudson region.

NYS DEC has prepared an action plan to deal with Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB). The report can be found here.

The NYS DEC report on wastewater collection and treatment can be found here.

Storm Assistance for Qualified Residents
The Town has been informed by Putnam County that there may be assistance available to seniors or disadvantaged qualifying residents who sustained damage from the May 15 storm. Presently the focus is on debris removal, however other types of assistance may be considered. If you, or one of your neighbors require assistance due to damage related to the storm, please send an email to supervisor@pattersonny.org or call 845-878-6500. Please provide your name, address, and a description of the assistance you require.
NYSEG Damage Claims
The number for submitting a claim with NYSEG by phone is 866-577-3787.

If customers would prefer to submit a claim on line, then here is the link:
https://www.nyseg.com/YourAccount/ClaimForm.html https://www.nyseg.com/YourAccount/ClaimForm.html

The online form does not support any attachments, so they may be sent either by fax to 207-629- 4733 or as an attachment in an email to avangridclaims@avangrid.com.

If the owner of record does not have an account number (i.e., because it is a rental property), then the name and billing address, or the phone number associated with the account should suffice.

NYSEG will only honor claims where there is clear evidence that NYSEG was negligent. In general, NYSEG maintains they are not responsible for damages that are caused by your use of electricity on your premises, or that are the result of forces beyond our control, such as unplanned service interruptions. NYSEG may not be honoring claims for spoiled food, hotel bills, lost wages, etc. due to the recent tornadoes and macrobursts.

NYSEG Warning: Scams Calls
Customers have reported receiving automated calls from “NYSEG” telling them that their electricity will be shut off later that day. The customer is instructed to call back to prevent this. The callback numbers, which vary, answer with “NYSEG automated service line,” and prompt you to press 3.

These calls are not from NYSEG and are an attempt to scam residents and businesses.

Some precautions to take to avoid falling victim to a scam:

  • Always type NYSEG’s Web address when making an online payment at nyseg.com. Do not rely on email links. While at nyseg.com, you can also check your account balance and any past-due amount status.
  • When making a payment by phone, always ensure that you are dialing NYSEG phone numbers: 1-800-572-1111 (customer service); 1-888-315-1755 (payment arrangements) or 1-800-600-2275 (self-service line). You can also check your account status by phone.
  • Do not make any payments over the phone to anyone who has contacted you or asked you to dial a different number.
  • Never provide your Social Security number, credit card number or bank information to anyone requesting it (over the phone or in person) unless you initiated the contact and feel confident that the transaction is legitimate.
  • NYSEG does not ask customers to purchase debit cards (like Green Dot cards) to make payments.
  • If you have fallen victim to a scam, immediately contact the Federal Trade Commission and your local police.
