Signs your well may be running dry during Maine’s drought

There is not much that can be done once a well does go dry, other than wait for it to refill, usually in the fall when there is a better chance for steady precipitation. It’s vital to conserve water before you reach that point and pay attention to signals that a well may be running dry.

The most reliable way to check your well is to take off the well’s cover and look down to observe the water level. But that’s not always the most practical way to check if your well is in a location that is hard to get to or so deep you can’t see all the way down.

If that’s the case, here are four signs you can watch for that your well is at risk of running dry.
