Soil Moisture Report

Today I did a septic tank investigation south of New Douglas.  The site was all in Tall Fescue, some mowed and some not mowed.  Soil was moist to a depth of 34 inches or so.  It was pretty uniform across the 3 borings.  This is good news as it shows that over time, each rain continues to penetrate a little deeper.  I am still hopeful that at least in Illinois we will go into the growing season with 12 to 20 inches of water stored in the soil.  It would be nice if we can get tile flowing and ponds filled by spring.  I am not sure what it will take to get wells recharging too.
