Berkshire County In Mild Drought Conditions

BOSTON — Although drought conditions have improved in some regions in the Commonwealth, Berkshire County remains in mild drought conditions.
With periodic precipitation events occurring throughout the Commonwealth in recent weeks, drought conditions, with the exception of groundwater in certain regions, improved or remained steady. As a result of recent data collections, Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) Secretary Kathleen Theoharides  announced that the Western and Cape Cod Regions will remain at a Level 1-Mild Drought.
"This summer, the Commonwealth's drought monitor regions continue to experience fluctuations in conditions, which necessitates us all to take proactive water conservation steps to reduce the burden on our natural systems and public water supplies," said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides. "With the growing season and high water usage recreation months officially starting, we strongly recommend that both residents and businesses limit outdoor water use to safeguard vital water systems." 
As outlined in the Massachusetts Drought Management Plan, a Level 1-Mild Drought warrants detailed monitoring of drought conditions, close coordination among state and federal agencies, and technical outreach and assistance to the affected municipalities.
