Drought advisory over in SD&G

FINCH – Residents in portions of SD&G living under a drought advisory can know their five month ordeal is over.

The South Nation Conservation Authority lifted its drought advisory today (Monday), which had been in place since July due to a dry spring and summer.

“Thanks to a wet fall, the ground is saturated and rivers and streams are flowing, which prompted SNC’s Water Response Team to lift the drought advisory,” the agency said in a statement.

But the effects of the drought, especially on trees, may be evident for years to come.

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority has also set its low water advisory back to “normal,” according to its website.
