Cresskill’s Environmental Commission is inviting residents to attend a Rain Barrel Making Workshop on June 15 at borough hall. Organizers hope there will be a flood of support for the concept of conserving water in rain barrels… New Jersey State Climatologist David Robinson of Rutgers University said that North Jersey is in an abnormally dry spell right now: "The groundwaters are low. March and April were very dry. May was average. We will have to hope for timely rains and conditions that are not too hot." Robinson, who is an advocate for rain barrels and smart lawn watering, said such measures are important because "it makes people aware of the finite nature of fresh water that’s out there…people put too much water on their lawns."
