And the Water Situation Gets Worse

You would think the rain we got over the past week or so would have improved the situation somewhat. You would be wrong:
The water level in the city’s Cooper Lake reservoir in of Woodstock has dropped even further since Kingston declared a “drought emergency” last week.

As a result, the city is consider buying water from other municipalities.

Kingston Water Superintendent Judith Hansen said the water level in Cooper Lake is about 13 feet below normal. That’s a foot lower than when the emergency was declared last week.
Not a record low, yet, according to Kirby's article. Let's hope it remains unbroken.

We can expect water emergencies for cities to become commonplace in the coming years.
