Local drought impact groups (LDIGs) are county-level groups that coordinate drought public awareness, provide impact assessment information to local and state leaders, and implement and initiate local mitigation and response options. These groups are coordinated by local representatives of Arizona Cooperative Extension and County Emergency Management and supported by ADWR's Drought Program.

In support of the Arizona Drought Preparedness Plan, local drought impact groups were created in 2006-2007 and met several times. Only two groups, Mohave and Pima County, are currently active due to resource constraints at the state and local level.
