Protecting Water Resources in Drought

More than half of New Hampshire is in moderate drought, and despite heavy rain these past few days, local and state officials and businesses that depend on water are strategizing to conserve for when it is scarce. How do communities, and the state, respond to extreme weather conditions, including drought, in order to protect their water resources?

  • Brian Goetz - Deputy director of public works for the city of Portsmouth.
  • Annie Ropeik - NHPR reporter on energy, environment, and development.
