Re: SC Drought Response Committee Meeting, September 20, 2006

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources will convene the state agency representatives and representatives from the West (Savannah) Drought Response Committee on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 at 10:00 AM. The meeting will be held in room 335 of the Rembert C. Dennis Building, 1000 Assembly Street in Columbia. The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the deterioration of drought conditions in the Savannah basin.  The state agency representatives of the drought response committee declared an incipient drought on August 16, 2006.  Recent rains have not improved the hydrologic conditions in the basin.  The U.S Army Corps of Engineers has upgraded the drought status to the second stage of drought.  The rainfall forecasted for this week is not expected to provide any significant relief.

We will need to officially vote on whether to upgrade the State’s drought status to moderate, which will require a quorum.
