(Des Moines) The weekly drought monitoring report is out and Tim Hall with the DNR says things are changing.
“Almost seven-percent of the state was not in any form of drought last week and in one weeks time we have more than doubled that to nearly 17-percent along the eastern part of the state.”
Hall says stream flows are almost normal in western Iowa and a little above normal in eastern Iowa that means communities that depend on surface water for drinking water supplies should be in good shape, those that depend on well water may still be coming up short of what’s needed.
