Adios 2018! Over 200 US locations have set record for the wettest year in recorded history. Most of those records were set east of the Continental Divide and are concentrated in the Mid-Atlantic and Carolinas.
For those of us that work in wet environments we are happy to see a new year upon us. We are a little bruised and battered but survived to fight the fight for clean water.
Happy New Year and let’s hope it is closer to normal, rainfall-wise, than 2018.
