Drought can imperil both the quantity and quality of the water supplied by utilities to the public. Early warning systems are vital for the water utility sector in strengthening its resilience to drought. NIDIS will introduce attendees to the comprehensive drought data and tools available on the U.S. Drought Portal.
The U.S. Drought Portal (Drought.gov), focuses on tools and resources to help water professionals better plan for and mitigate the impacts of drought. In January 2021, NOAA’s National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) partnered with the National Centers for Environmental Information to launch the redesigned Drought.gov: a one-stop shop for data, decision-support products, resources and information on drought, including economic impact data and drought conditions and forecasts down to the city, county, and watershed levels.
Join the experts in a town hall demonstration to learn what's new in the recently updated U.S. Drought Portal.
