NYDEC: Cortland County Returns to “Normal Designation” Status for Drought


One positive thing about the consistent rain that occurred in September and most of October so far is that the drought watch for Cortland County, and practically all of Upstate New York is now gone.

Recently, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (NYDEC) updated statewide drought conditions and returned a large part of the state that was under a drought watch back to normal designation.

The area that remains in a drought watch is Long Island, and the Lower Hudson Valley. Cortland County recorded around 7 inches of rain in the month of September.
