Drought watch lifted for D.C. metro region
The Washington Metropolitan Council of Governments (COG) has discontinued the drought watch it issued for the area on September 9.
From the COG press release:
Since the WATCH was declared, regional water resource conditions have improved thanks to recent precipitation that resulted in improved stream flow levels throughout the Potomac River basin and to cooler weather that has reduced demands. Please remember, citizens are still being encouraged to use water wisely throughout the entire year.
We're thankful that the recent rainfall has allowed us to lift the watch, however, we want to emphasize and encourage the public to use water wisely all year long" said Drought Coordination Committee Chair and Fairfax County Executive Anthony Griffin.
