This year has been particularly dry, which caused DEP to issue a drought watch in late July for most northern and central regions of New Jersey. With continued dry weather, there is now a possibility that the watch may become a warning. Jeff Hoffman, New Jersey’s State Geologist, joined Bob Bostock to discuss the current drought watch and DEP’s role in public awareness, water conservation, and prevention of droughts.
