Feature Interview: John Sheehan

By Skye Rohde

Oswego, NY – When people think of water in the Adirondacks, they envision clear lakes and flowing rivers. But some towns in the park are finding their drinking water isn't quite that pure. Earlier this week, an environmental group called the Adirondack Council proposed a constitutional amendment to let communities in the park drill wells to access clean water. John Sheehan is the group's communications director. He told WRVO's Skye Rohde that communities like Raquette Lake face serious problems with the water in their reservoirs.
