Our last post touched on ‘how to beat the summer drought” and here is a good visual example of why water conservation is so important. The US Drought Monitor maps are released every Thursday to give a visual representation of the current drought conditions in the United States. You can access loads of information that include pdfs, animated maps and tools focused on drought. This information can help you sell water conservation upgrades to your customers while on the job.
The U.S. Drought Monitor is produced in partnership between the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the United States Department of Agriculture, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
