State survey will measure economic impact of drought
MANCHESTER (AP) State experts are asking homeowners and business owners about the regional drought's economic impact.
The New Hampshire Departmental of Environmental Services is seeking input from both private well-owners and industrial, commercial, institutional and agricultural water users. The state department says it wants to figure out where the drought's having an economic impact, and what is the need for help like disaster assistance.
The online surveys ask if wells are no longer sucking air or pumping sand or muddy water. The surveys also ask if homeowners have been able to pay or secure financial assistance for water supply issues.
