Interactive Map: Manufacturing and Drought

Manufacturers use water for many processes, including fabrication, processing, washing, diluting, cooling, and transporting goods. During drought conditions, reductions in or interruption of the water supply can result in a reduction of plant productivity or even closure of manufacturing facilities. Use the interactive map below to explore agricultural crop data relevant to manufacturing alongside drought and climate conditions. Or, view a full-screen version of this map.
