Pennsylvania Lifts “Drought Watch” but LCA still watching!

5/16/2017 – The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has lifted the Drought Watch for all counties in the state. That means that water supply levels have returned to normal status state-wide for the first time since last summer’s drought started.

Here in Lehigh County Authority’s service area, we continue to watch our water supplies to ensure all indicators are returning to “Normal” status as well. Currently, groundwater levels continue to lag behind in the recovery from last year’s drought, and we will continue to monitor these conditions as we head into summer.
