“You have to understand all the things you see around you, all these extreme events, are all signals of a changing climate."

@NHBulletinNews interviewed CAW co-chairs Sherry Godlewski and Abigail Lyon for an insightful article about climate impacts in NH: https://newhampshirebulletin.com/2021/07/13/this-is-definitely-on-us-june-brings-record-breaking-heat/

While drought is improving in areas, groundwater levels often lag behind in recovery. Next week, NHDES is scheduled to complete it's monthly sampling of 31 monitoring wells, which should provide a clearer picture of how groundwater levels have been influenced by recent rain.
