The wells in this area must go down 400 feet. The water table is at 190 feet. A local excavator said this area has been getting drier for 25 years. We are adding 10,000 gallon cisterns and numerous ponds and swales to hold what water does appear. All the gutters on the buildings need to be replaced and expanded to catch heavy rains from gulf hurricanes. A network of ceramic drain pipe connect the property to an off-site disposal. This will be diverted back to large ponding areas.
