DROUGHT INFORMATION FROM WSDA
In the past several years, Washington State has experienced various drought conditions resulting from insufficient water to meet the needs of our state's water users. Drought conditions can result from lack of precipitation, soil moisture anomalies, changes in precipitation patterns, and high temperatures that cause our winter precipitation to fall as rain rather than snow. In 2015, a major driver of the drought was the abnormally low snowpack across the state. Reduced snowpack resulted in less runoff to feed our rivers and lakes, causing hardship to many water users throughout the state, including agricultural producers.
