Catskill Craftsmen is located in Stamford, New York, a small rural village nestled in the northern section of the Catskill Mountains. Stamford is noted as being the location of the headwaters of the great Delaware River. This area is also known for picturesque views and exciting year-round outdoor activities. What many are not aware of is that much of the surrounding area is considered the Watershed for New York City.
The NYC Watershed was completed in 1927 and is the nation's largest unfiltered water supply. About 90 percent of New York's Water supply comes from the 1,600 square miles of the Catskill/ Delaware watershed. Our water is of such high quality that 1.3 billion gallons of unfiltered water will supply residents in New York City, Westchester, Orange, Putnam and Ulster counties. Supporting efforts to keep this water clean while providing high-quality wood products is a responsibility Catskill Craftsmen takes seriously.
