Officials with the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority say the Mississippi river watershed is in minor drought due to lack of rainfall.

Rainfall amounts throughout the region have been extremely low to nonexistent for the month of July.

The MVCA is asking residents, businesses and industries to reduce water consumption by ten percent in order to help reduce the impacts of the low water conditions.
