Drought Monitoring Status: Active

ICPRB’s Cooperative Water Supply Operations on the Potomac (CO-OP) has began active drought monitoring due to a low river flow.

When the Potomac River flow at Point of Rocks, Maryland, dips below 2,000 cubic feet per second, ICPRB initiates active drought monitoring. During this time, ICPRB staff sends daily reports to stakeholders and partners with data about flow, weather, and water-use.

The reports are available on the CO-OP Data Portal.
