Drought brings shortages to southwestern Minnesota residential wells
WORTHINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Wade Anderson has a new chore outside his home in southwest Minnesota.
Every week, he drops a tape measure into his well to find out how far the water is from the surface. Last Wednesday, it was 10 feet from the top of the well.
That's good, but Anderson knows it won't last. The water level is dropping a little every day.
"It's a bad deal," Anderson said. "It's a really bad deal."
