A dry creek bed, near Wrangell's upper reservoir. Borough officials declared a Stage I water watch last week, in response to ongoing drought conditions across Southeast Alaska. The snowpack was inadequate to refill the community's water supply, according to Mayor Steve Prysunka, and weather forecasts predict dry weather with intermittent, but minor, rainfall. A town hall meeting to discuss ongoing conservation efforts and the city's water situation has been scheduled for June 12.
