The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Drought Assessment Committee gets together later this month to continue coordinating a comprehensive state and federal response to drought conditions affecting portions of the state.

A drought alert in accordance with Governor Mike Parson’s Executive Order remains active until September 1st.

Missouri has been under a drought alert since May 2023 which was issued on the heels of the previous alert which was active from July 2022 to March 2023.

The Drought Assessment Committee meeting will be held in the Lewis and Clark State Office Building in Jefferson City starting at 2-PM on Friday, the 19th.

The meeting is open to the public which is encouraged to report any continuing drought conditions.
