The New Year has just begun, winter weather is on its way, and outdoor home projects are minimal. What better time to start planning your Spring home improvements than NOW!
Close your eyes and imagine, smell the freshness; the fresh cut grass, the gorgeous flowers, blossoming trees. Now imagine watering your landscaping with fresh groundwater produced by your own well; no added chemicals, no water bill.
Last year, Upstate South Carolina had a few dry spells that caused lakes to lower, grass to get crunchy, and its citizens longing for rain. I know what you might be thinking. ‘ Well, if the lakes are lowering, the groundwater will lower, too, right?’ The answer- not exactly.
Even though some water aquifers may be affected by a drought, it is not as extreme as what you see in your surface water. Surface water- your lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams- are all susceptible to evaporation. The aquifer supplying your well is located below the bedrock beneath the Earth’s surface, so there is nowhere for it to evaporate. Even the water you use for landscaping eventually seeps back into the aquifer after a period of time. So, as long as there is still some surface water to recharge your aquifer, a drought, or more than one pump to that particular aquifer, should not affect your pumps water supply.
Now, let’s return to Spring- warmer weather, chirping birds, luscious foliage - and let Croft Drilling assist you with a well for your irrigation. Isn’t that nice?
