Missouri DNR releases drought mitigation plan

One Missouri state agency has developed a strategy for combating drought conditions. 

The Department of Natural Resources has released its Drought Mitigation and Response Plan, within days of Governor Mike Parson declaring a drought alert. 

Michael Weller, with the department, gives some examples of how homeowners can reduce water use during these dry times:

“Water efficient fixtures that homeowners can install to help reduce their water use…if they’re going to irrigate their lawn to irrigate it early in the morning when relative humidity is highest. That will help get them the most bang for their buck when it comes to their water use.”

The plan also has suggestions for farmers and livestock owners.
