SNC Ends Drought Advisory

SNC Ends Drought Advisory

South Nation Conservation (SNC) has lifted the 5-month Drought Advisory triggered by a dry spring and summer.

Thanks to a wet fall, the ground is saturated and rivers and streams are flowing.

The effects of a drought may be felt for a few years on trees. SNC completed survival assessments of tree plantations and noted a lower first-year survival than normal.  In particular, some hardwood seedlings suffered premature leaf drop and some conifers dried up.

SNC will continue to monitor precipitation and streamflows and will provide updates as required.
