Water is always precious, but it’s especially important to conserve water during a drought.
Crops and animals take extra care during a drought. As ponds dry up, be sure you have other water sources such as well water. Make sure your well pump is not turning on then off repeatedly. If it is, it may be “sucking air” due to low water tables. Turn it off and let it rest until the water table can rise.
