Department of Ecology
Our Vision: Our innovative partnerships sustain healthy land, air, and water in harmony with a strong economy.
Our Mission: Protect, preserve, and enhance the environment for current and future generations.
Background: A drought emergency is declared when water supply conditions are expected to fall below 75 percent of average and there is potential for undue hardships. A drought advisory may be issued ahead of a potential emergency to help water users take steps to reduce water use. Most recently, our state declared drought emergencies in 2015, 2019, and 2020.
