nwro drought

Governor Jay Inslee declared a statewide drought emergency on May 15, 2015. The declaration comes after the governor's Emergency Water Executive Committee determined that 48 of 62 watersheds in Washington have water supplies of 75 percent of normal or below and water users are experiencing hardships from water shortages or are expected to experience hardships. The May 15, 2015 drought declaration qualifies all river basins in the Northwest Region for drought relief funding.
