In October, NJDEP Commissioner Bob Martin signed an Administrative Order declaring a drought warning in 14 counties, with drought watch in effect in several others. We are seeking your assistance sharing information on water conservation with the residents and businesses in your municipality.
Attached to this email is an electronic “Drought Toolkit”, with documents intended to help you conduct drought outreach. These include a copy of the drought warning Administrative Order, a customizable template press release about the drought, a flyer with conservation tips, more information about how to use the toolkit, and an explanation of “toilet leak detection tablets”, distributed during last week’s League of Municipalities Convention. A link to the online booklet “Blue Guide for Water Conservation” can be found here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/delawareestuary/pdf/blue-guide.pdf . Further information and current conditions can always be found on our drought information site, http://njdrought.org/ .
