Drought Indicators Statewide Return to Normal

Harrisburg, PA – Following a meeting today of the Commonwealth Drought Task Force, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that 19 counties have moved out of drought watch into normal status.

Hydrologic conditions are now normal statewide.

“Thanks to a wet spring, Pennsylvania has seen sufficient recovery of drought indicators to return all counties to normal status,” said DEP Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “We’ll continue to monitor conditions heading into summer.”

DEP bases its drought declarations on four indicators: precipitation deficits (averaged from numerous gauges), stream flows, groundwater levels, and soil moisture.

Berks, Bucks, Centre, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Mifflin, Montgomery, Northampton, Northumberland, Perry, Philadelphia, Snyder, and Union Counties all moved from watch to normal status.

The Drought Task Force will next meet when conditions warrant.

Find more drought-related information on the DEP Drought Information website.

Yes PA residents you may now resume your regularly scheduled water wasting activities. Watering lawns and flowers, car washing, and let's not forget spraying off that sidewalk or parking lot. Nothing prettier than concrete sprayed with a hose.
