- "I don't reckon it can be done. There's nothing. Nothing. Closest was that thing to dry up puddles and ponds, that Drought Charm, but that was nowhere near powerful enough to drain the lake."
- —Ronald Weasley helping Harry Potter research for the second task in the Triwizard Tournament
The Drought Charm (incantation unknown) is a charm used to dry up puddles and ponds; it is not powerful enough to affect lakes.
Ron Weasley found this charm while helping his friend Harry Potter look for a way to get through the Second Task of the 1994 Triwizard Tournament.
