Although drought conditions continue to improve across the state, we are still in a moderate drought according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. The precipitation results recorded at the Water Treatment Plant in Hingham for the month of January were 6.62 inches, which is 2.6 inches above average for the month of January. However, as you may recall we ended 2016 with more than a 9 inch deficit. Both groundwater and surface water levels have risen in the past month. As of January 31, 2017, Accord Pond was at 73% capacity, which is 17% below average for this time of year.
