New Jersey Department of Enviornmental Protection Lifts Drought Warning for Most of New Jersey

New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin announced that the agency will be lifting a drought warning for 12 of New Jersey's 14 counties. These warnings have been in place since October of last year due to abnormally low levels of precipitation that have been afflicting the state. While the removal of the drought warnings is good news for most of New Jersey and it's environmental areas, some reservoirs still remain below normal levels. As a result, the counties of Hunterdon and Somerset will still remain under drought watch. In order to help conserve water, Commissioner Martin suggests residents practice a number of water saving techniques such as limiting landscaping efforts and using timely discretion for daily showers.
