The D-N-R expert who keeps tabs of waterflow levels in the state says March was dry, but overall we are heading into spring in good shape. Tim Hall says snow and rain have help cut down some dry areas.

Iowa’s new Drought Plan lists the state in  a “Drought Watch,” which Hall says is a signal to keep a close  eye on what’s happening.

He says there are still some dry areas in the state, but things are much better thanks to those wetter months.

Hall says the improvement is not a signal we have enough water not to worry about it.

He says we should try to not waste water whether we are in a drought situation, or have normal levels.
