We heard there was a well here 100 years ago, but no one alive remembers where.  Most wells here are "gypy".  Maybe what you call salty.  Folks used to rely on cisterns to capture rain water but we are all on a rural water line now.  Its wells tap an aquifer; we don't have a use limit but pay for usage.  What measurement is a "meg"?  We were listed as a drought area until this big rain.

The farm ponds are full now.  Checked out our back pond today.  Lots of wildlife tracks around it, too.

A Meg is 1 Million liters.

Glad to read you have had substantial rain and not classified as in "drought" :)
