Tell it to the District
Dear Citizen Readers:
Has your home well gone dry yet?  Did you know that if it does that your home owners insurance won’t cover your well replacement?  
Digging a deeper well is an expensive proposition.  Depending on how deep you need to go, it can cost several hundred dollars to get to water. Then you have to replace your pump. When the pump tries to pump air, it burns up and you will need a new one to the tune of $1,000 to $1,500—maybe more. It all depends on when you hit water.
The rural home owners in Levy and Dixie counties are in trouble. Home wells are going dry all over the place. Here in Levy County, south and west from Bronson, the scientific monitoring wells are generally the lowest in the record by far, including in Bronson, Goethe, Wekiva, Fowlers Bluff refuge and Rosewood. One of the monitoring wells that the SRWMD was using at Long Pond went dry recently. Monitoring wells in Otter Creek and Gulf Hammock are not quite as low as they were in 2002, but are pretty close. Wells near Newberry, Archer and High Springs also dropped below 2002 levels.
