Governor Brown Declares Drought Emergencies in Crook, Harney and Klamath Counties

Governor Kate Brown has declared drought emergencies in Crook, Harney and Klamath counties.


These three counties requrested the declaration due to low water levels and record low snowpack.


The drought continues to have significant impact on agriculture, livestock and natural resources in the state.


Last month, Governor Brown declared drought emergencies in Malheur and Lake counties.


These declarations allow for more flexibility in how the state's limited water is managed.
