Summer Drought and Water Conservation Suggestions

Drought Map


The state has issues guidelines for water conservation in the hopes of helping to alleviate concerns with the ongoing drought, specifically, to try to conserve water to ensure its continued supply for those areas outside of the current drought area, and to help with recharge for this within it. The above maps shows the extent of New Hampshire’s drought this season. As the weather turns to colder days, precipitation may increase, but in the event that it does not, or that the weather changes too quickly and the ground freezes before the precipitation can recharge the aquifer, there is a chance of the drought expanding until the spring of 2017 and the winter snow melt. While Lisbon is not immediately at risk, if the drought continues and spreads northward, the worst-case scenario may be that wells could go dry during the bitter winter months resulting in an inability to use residential wells, and the inability to drill them deeper in the winter. All residents are encouraged to take responsible steps to conserve water, and while no outdoor watering ban is being proposed for the Town yet, the Town may need to consider this if the drought condition worsens.

Attached below are suggested steps from the state for conserving water.
