- "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 evaporate liquids. Harry came across this spell while looking for a way of getting though the second task in the 1994 Triwizard Tournament.
