Since I have a pond in my back yard, I can tell what level the aquifer is at. For the first time since it was installed 42 years ago, my neighbour’s well has run dry. Not a good sign.
Here is how my pond looked in July 2011. This has been about it’s average level over 14 years but has dropped a bit a few times.
This is how it was looking in Oct. this year. Lowest I had ever seen it.
Till I saw this in Dec 2012.
