I did a septic tank investigation north of Witt yesterday. It happened to be in a soybean field so it is real crop conditions. The topsoil ( 7 inches) was fairly dry except that the surface was damp because of 3/10ths of an inch of rain. Subsoil moisture was excellent at a depth of 18 inches or so. There was still a water table in one of the holes at around 54 inches deep. The borings were on good prairie soils.
