RDKB Drought Level 2 – Dry Conditions

With the warm temperatures and less than average precipitation, most of the Boundary region has now entered drought level 2 or “dry” conditions.

For Level 2, surface water users are recommended to reduce water withdrawals by 10% of licensed water quantity; for those not licensed, 10% of current use.

The Boundary region received approximately half of its normal precipitation amounts in July with Rock Creek  receiving 8 mm  and Grand Forks totaling  9 mm.
