→Drought Warning Declared←
DEP Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell, on behalf of Governor Tom Wolf, announced revised drought declarations on November 3, 2016.
Data from the Commonwealth drought monitoring network show that dry conditions persisting in the middle of the state and lack of precipitation in the eastern part of the state have deepened precipitation deficits, resulting in extremely low stream flow and groundwater levels, particularly in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding area in the Delaware River Basin.
What this means:
NBMA is asking customers to use water wisely, and avoid any unnecessary water usage. The State of Pennsylvania asks that we seek a 10-15% reduction through voluntary measures.
