Water Supply & Quality
Henry County, IA

Start Date: 8/5/2018 - End Date: 8/5/2018
Pond has lost another foot of water so I can no long use the gravity flow water tank for the cows. Have not been able to pump water all year. Now have only one source of water at the house. Ground is so hard I cannot insert a soil probe. Some trees are dropping leaves. Pastures continue to dry up. For the month of July I recorded 0.99" of rain.
