Interior Creates Drought Prevention Working Group

Joint effort between the Interior and Agriculture departments to address ongoing drought in the West.

The Department of the Interior announced on Wednesday that it had created an Interagency Working Group designed to address the ongoing drought conditions in the western United States. The group is a joint effort between the Interior and Agriculture departments and will work with state and local governments to address the best solutions to drought conditions. 

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said of the plan, “Water is a sacred resource. This Interagency Working Group will deliver a much-needed proactive approach to providing drought assistance to U.S. communities, including efforts to build long-term resiliency to water shortages. We are committed to using every resource available to our bureaus to ensure that Tribes, irrigators, and the adjoining communities receive adequate assistance and support.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the Working Group would seek God’s guidance as they search for effective solutions to droughts. 
  • That Secretary Haaland would be given wisdom from the Lord to lead the Interior.
  • For an increase in precipitation in the parched western states.
