Since July, much of New Jersey has been under a drought watch. In the months since, rainfall has continued to be scarce in much of the state. As a result, 14 counties are now under a drought warning. With reservoir levels dropping and precipitation continuing to be below normal levels, water conservation becomes ever more important. Dan Kennedy, assistant commissioner of Water Resources Management, joined Bob Bostock to provide an update on the drought situation in New Jersey as well as some tips on water conservation, because Every Drop Counts.
