CONCORD — Those affected by the extreme drought are able to report how they are impacted to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES).
NHDES is collecting this information to help assess the location and severity of drought impacts and to manage drought response efforts.
Homeowners on private wells and public water suppliers, as well as industrial, commercial, institutional and agricultural water users withdrawing water from wells or surface waters that have experienced or are experiencing water supply issues are asked to report drought impacts here.
Thursday's update to the weekly drought monitor shows southeastern New Hampshire continues to be the epicenter of the drought. However, NHDES says water shortage issues are occurring statewide, outside of this extreme area, and should also be reported.
NHDES will continue to collect information on economic impacts associated with the drought until drought conditions are alleviated.
Month-to-date, Manchester is actually averaging near normal for rainfall.
However, precipitation deficits since January first are between 10 and 15 inches. It will take a series of soaking rainstorms to get us out of this drought.
