Lebanon — Boone County’s drought conditions saw modest improvement this week, with the county being shifted back one stage into the “severe” category by the U.S. Drought Monitor.

August has been the wettest month of 2012, however, with rains last week bringing the monthly total to 5.72 inches. In the last week, Lebanon received 1.67 inches of rain, with 1.13 coming on Friday and the rest on Tuesday, measured at the Lebanon Utility Wastewater Treatment Plant.

It has so far rained on eight days this month, with more than one inch falling on Aug. 5, Aug. 9 and Aug. 17. Until then, Lebanon had recorded only one other rain of an inch or more all year — on May 2.
