The governor of Oregon is about to force the official machinery to review the water consumption of the state. The plan to implement the review and conserve maximum water is under design in the state located in the arid region. The California droughts recently attracted tremendous press attention and looks like Oregon is following its footsteps.

He will also appeal people to save water and ask state agencies to create awareness about the drought situation.

In upcoming year more such droughts are expected in the region. Other states on the western coast are also on their way to implement stringent water conservation laws. The state of Washington and California is survey most drought hit regions. Washington State received lowest rainfall and snow last year. The low precipitation also means than increased number of wildfires in the dry western states. The fire departments in the state are already on high alert.
