As part of the state's emergency response efforts to the drought, New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) is gathering information related to private well water availability and drought related economic impacts. The information requested in the below survey will assist the state in identifying the location and severity of drought impacts for assessing drought response needs.

Who should submit this form?

Industrial, commercial, institutional and agricultural water users on private wells experiencing problems with water supply due to the ongoing drought or who were experiencing problems, but made repairs to mitigate water supply issues. (This does not include water users solely on public water systems.)

Why is the information needed?
-To identify and assess drought response needs of those not served by public water systems.

-To identify where adverse impacts associated with drought are occurring.

-To quantify the specific economic impacts associated with drought to support potential disaster assistance requests.
