County Under Drought Watch; Driftwood Restricts Water Use

Last week, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) issued a drought watch for 34 counties in north central Pennsylvania and beyond, including Cameron County.

Members evaluated recently collected data that indicates water supply levels continue to drop. Low stream flows, declining groundwater levels and below-average rainfall across counties in the Northern Tier and south-central Pennsylvania have contributed to the problem. Rainfall deficits have been recorded as 6 inches lower than expected over the past 90 days.

A number of communities have already instituted voluntary or mandatory reductions in water consumption for residents served by public water systems.
