Soil Moisture Report
I got to work outdoors today. I had a septic investigation in Ramsey, and late in the day another near Hillsboro. There are still puddles out there, and near Ramsey, there was a water table at about 20 inches. It was quite a mess to pull soil from 5 feet deep. Southeast of Hillsboro, I pulled into the field with the truck. The soil was still fairly damp, but firm. One boring had a water table at 30 inches, but the other 2 had none within 5 feet. Landscape was fairly uniform, so I am had pressed to say why. There was some machinery moving on the roads, but I did not see anyone attempting field work.
