Rhode Island lifts drought advisory after spring rainfall

Rhode Island lifts drought advisory after spring rainfall.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Rhode Island has lifted its drought advisory after officials say the state received significant rainfall last spring.
Officials say the advisory was lifted Wednesday based on indicators and assessments from the state’s Drought Steering Committee.
Water Resources Board Chairwoman Susan Licardi says the 2016-17 drought was among other significant drought episodes in southern New England since the early 1990s.
The state still urges residents to conserve water for indoor and outdoor use.
