Assabet, Sudbury and Concord River watershed upgraded to Mild Drought

Nov 14, 2022: Because of recent significant rainfall, Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) Secretary Bethany Card announced that "many of the Commonwealth’s water systems are starting to rebound from long term drought. While this is largely good news, portions of the state, such as the Merrimack River, Parker, and Ipswich River basins and the Islands Region, continue to lag behind, so we ask that everyone continue to practice household water conservation as we move into the winter season.”

The Northeast (our watershed) has been upgraded to Level 1-Mild Drought.
