Update on Drought Emergency in NH

Drought Emergency in New Hampshire
Recommended Measures for New Hampshire Residents

Southern New Hampshire is experiencing a drought emergency. Southern New Hampshire has received about 50% of its normal rainfall over the last six months.  Streamflow and groundwater levels are at historic low levels. Some New Hampshire residents on private wells, as well as some community water systems are experiencing water supply shortages. More widespread shortages are imminent if rainfall does not replenish our lakes, streams and groundwater supplies before winter weather sets in, as our water resources will probably not be substantially refilled until after the snowmelt during the spring of 2017. The drought condition is a very slow-moving natural disaster that may continue to worsen.

All New Hampshire residents and businesses are asked to reduce water use and be prepared for the effects of drought.

Click here to see a map of the known Water Use Restrictions and Bans (updated 9/15/16)
Concord, NH - A combination of a below average snowpack in the spring, little precipitation to recharge the groundwater, an increase of evapotranspiration in the summer, and the inability of New Hampshire watersheds to store large volumes of water due to their geology has landed the northern half of the state in abnormally dry conditions and the southern half in severe drought. During the July 22, 2016 meeting of the New Hampshire Drought Management Team (DMT), State Climatologist, Mary Stampone, indicated that relief was not in the near future and drought conditions will likely persist into the fall. As a result of the current conditions and the long-term forecast, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) is urging New Hampshire residents to conserve water as long as drought conditions persist.
To protect water supplies, over one hundred public water systems in New Hampshire have implemented outdoor water use restrictions or bans in their service areas. If you reside in an area of severe drought, which currently includes the following counties: Belknap, Cheshire, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Strafford and Sullivan, and your water supplier has not issued a restriction or if you are a private homeowner on your own well, NHDES urges you to refrain from using water outdoors except for hand watering of vegetable gardens until precipitation mitigates drought conditions.
