LRCA upgrades low water warning

We may have received a lot of rain, but the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority says drought conditions in the area are getting worse.  For that reason the organization has upgraded its low water condition warning from Level 1 to Level 2. The LRCA says that means that the overall precipitation hasn't been enough to ease water supply problems especially for those who rely on wells for their drinking water.
