My previous post about our soggy late October weather got some of you talking about groundwater levels. The experts say the water table/groundwater levels are close to normal across the state. Here’s what the USGS had to say in the “Virginia Drought Monitoring Task Force” report of Oct. 27
Ground-water levels across the State as shown by the Climate-Response well network are recording water levels in the normal range or above except for the well located near Roanoke, Va., which is recording levels well below-normal and the Rockingham well, which is recording levels below-normal.
The entire report is a good read for those of you who are interested. Other state and national agencies put their two cents too.
