NH Drought Management Team (DMT) Meeting Thursday, October 1, 2020

Today, in response to the increasing concerns related to the drought, Governor Chris Sununu announced that New Hampshire's Drought Management Team (DMT) will convene for the third time this year. Currently, 100% of the state is experiencing drought and portions of the state this past week were elevated to "extreme drought" (D3), including most of Strafford County and parts of Belknap County, Merrimack County and Rockingham County. The New Hampshire Drought Management Team will meet via video conference. The media are welcome to attend, but must RSVP before the meeting to ensure connectivity. At the meeting, an overview of drought conditions and impacts in the state will be discussed with key representatives across State Government, academia, industry and other organizations.
