As of October 1, 2018: Six of the state’s seven drought indicators (streamflow, groundwater, reservoir levels, crop moisture, and two precipitation indices) are in the normal range for all regions. The fire index has returned to normal in all regions, except for the Cape and Islands region, which is at the advisory level.

The state asks the public to continue to be mindful of the amount of water they are using to ensure that essential needs – such as drinking water, fire protection, and crop hydration – are being met.
