Steps Well Owners Can (NAPS)--In any given year, parts of the United States experience conditions ranging from abnormally dry to severe drought, and for private water well owners there are steps that can help them weath- er a dry spell, according to the National Ground Water Association (NGWA). Drought Effects On Wells When a well goes "dry" due to drought, it often means the water table drops below the level of the pump. It is like putting a straw into the top of a full glass of water. Ifa person drinks the wa- ter and does mlt lower the straw as the water level drops, that person will end up sucking air. ]here is still water in the glass, but the straw is above it. If drought is severe enough or the well shallow enough, the water level can drop below the level of the well entirely. Wells typically do not go dry at once. P,~ither, the water table drops gradually due to a lack of replenishment from rain. Often, older wells drilled only into the top nfan aquifer are most likely to fail first. Depending (m the severity of drought, it can take multiple soaking rains over time fi~r an aquifer to be replenished. %ome aquifers are sealed off from surface water replenishment due to an impermeahle layer of rock. A well drilled into such an aquifer is drawing from a limited source of water, which, when depleted, could take hundreds or even thousands of years to replenish. Diagnosing Loss in Well Productivity Even in an area of water scarcity, a well's loss of productivity c~mld be due to reasons other than a lowering of the water table. A qualified water well sys- tem ctmtractor can determine the cause. When the pr.hlem is not a lowered water talale, a well sontetinles cat3 be re hahilitated t. yield sulastantially water, ()fl.en, various techniques can he applied to the well screen or surround ing geoMgy toenahle v.'ater t~ flow freely into the well.

Deepening a well, however, does not guarantee that it will produce more water. In some cases, a new well drilled in a different location may be necessary to provide a more reliable water supply. A reputable water well system profes- sional can inspect a well and recom- mend options. Using Water Wisely One aspect of using water wisely is not wasting it. Installing a water meter can pnwide valuable information on how much water is being used and the effec- tiveness of various conservation efforts. Another aspect nf using water wisely is managing its use; filr instance, sched- tdiog water-intensive activities such as clothes Washing, dishwashing and showers across the day so they are not occurring simultanet)usly.

This tradition can be a great time to teach kids more about taking care of their teeth. Here are five fun and inexpensive ways for families to wel- come this magical sprite. 1. A receipt for your child's tooth: Leave this document in your child's bedroom to mark the visit. Include your child's name, the date, a description of the tooth and the reward, plus a note such as "'lhank you for this lovely tooth! I can see that you are broshing every day. Keep up the good work!" 2. A tooth fairy dish: As an alterna- tive to the under-the-pillow trick, help your child choose or create a special dish to hold teeth. Visit a thrift shop or housewares store to find one or paint your own at a ceramics studio. 3. A keepsake book: Turn a blank notebook into a lasting record of the Tooth Fairy's visits. Have your child choose one and decorate it with your child's name, hometown and any other details he or she wants the Tooth Fairy to know. Have your child write the 'lboth Fairy a note every time he or she hlses a t,ruth. When you leave your child~ gift, rec~wd the date and add a note from the 'lboth Fairy. 4.A bright-smile calendar: l.eave a hrushing calendar in your child's ro(un as an extra gifl from the 'lboth Fairy.
