The county commissioners requested the designation last month because of the county's low snow pack levels.

 

Crook County's Emergency Manager, Mike Ryan says it's been a tough year.

 

"Well, we haven't gone through a drought declaration for the better part of 10 to 15 years.  What I can tell you is what I know from people I've talked with on the drought council.  The Agriculture Department will be offering resources, not sure if they are monetary or other solutions to try and mitigate the problems."
