On August 28, 2011, Schoharie County was one of the many areas in New York that was catastrophically affected by Tropical Storm Irene. The Schoharie Creek rumbled through the village and destroyed the Schoharie County Office Complex along with many other businesses and homes.
Three buildings that make up the county office had six feet of water and half-foot of sludge. After two years of construction and renovation on the building, county offices began repopulating for the first time since Tropical Storm Irene. Kasselman Electric was ready to bring hope back into the community of Schoharie.
Kasselman Electric was responsible for all electrical construction consisting of switchboards, panel boards, low voltage transformers, wiring devices, interior lighting, fire detection and alarm, and communication cabling. There was also an elevated platform that was installed for a backup diesel generator.
