Oregon is facing another year with a scant snowpack to provide for summer water needs. While California’s more dire situation has generally dominated the headlines, water has been an increasingly scarce commodity in our state, as well. Although most of Oregon’s snowpack is the result of spring storms, warm weather has prevented the usual base of winter snow from forming, and this is leading to concerns for our water resource in the coming seasons.
