Drought fears growing as NJ keeps getting drier
Sparse amounts of rain during the past few months have reduced the amount of drinking water that's available in New Jersey, prompting state officials to place six more counties under a drought watch and consider upgrading the current drought watch to a drought warning in 12 other counties. "The recent rainfall we received, while spanning several days, was not enough to reverse downward trends in our water supplies due to extended dry weather patterns over most the year," Bob Martin, commissioner of the state Department of Environmental Protection, said recently.
