Although Kitsap County has a moderate marine climate, drought conditions can occur. Damage to agricultural products and fish, forest fires can happen. Farming and forestry-related jobs could also be lost. Possible saltwater intrusion into the water table could harm local wells. Drought conditions will increase the need for wildland fire suppression responses. Droughts will also limit the availability of supporting water sources. Based on a recent assessment of Kitsap County, drought is rated a low risk hazard.
