Drought Watch

The State of New Jersey is in Drought Watch as persistent dry and hot conditions continue to stress water supplies throughout the state.

If conditions do not improve, declaration of a drought warning or a drought emergency with mandatory water use restrictions may become necessary. Voluntary conservation measures during a Drought Watch can help to avoid more serious and restrictive drought conditions.


Did you know the average American uses 100 gallons of water per day? In the summer, outdoor water use can more than double. To learn more about what you can do to conserve water, go to: dep.nj.gov/conserve-water #NewJersey #WaterConservation #Summer
