Asotin County water level is at mid-January amounts.
ASOTIN, WA - Despite heavy rain and snowfall in the region, water levels are still below the necessary averages.

Asotin County Emergency Management Coordinator, Butch Aiken said the drought isn't over. Last week at elevations of 57-hundred feet, fifteen inches of snow were recorded. But there were only three-inches at the four-thousand foot level. Despite the precipitation, only Asotin Creek had a threat of high water.

"We're keeping an eye on it," said Aiken. "Everything is down, all the rivers are down. There is no flooding in Washington at this particular time."

Aiken said the amount of snowfall and rain measured is what we should've had by mid-January.
