If you do not live in California, we are in the worst drought on record. In my neighborhood alone, 13 home (that I know of) have had to add more down pipe, or have a new well dug, to the new target depth of 350 feet. The old depth being around 200 feet. Now this morning i understand that this recent 6.0 earthquake in Napa Valley CA, has released water from the deep depths of the earth, and has recharged their current well static water levels? This is a new one on me, but it makes perfect sense, and reminds me of "fracking" in the oil fields. I live about 60 miles from the latest quake, and did not feel a thing, so I'm now rooting for one! I just wonder how many of you old timer well drillers have known of this for year's, and have a shortcut called dynomite!lol
