    water table

    hi lads whats your areas like with the amount of rain we have had of late ? been round my patch and the water table is now showing in places i have not seen it before and thats not just standing water.the ditches are full and overflowing some areas look like its got a flight pond i think a few homeowners will start to see floods in the next few months in areas that have not had floods as yet.

    The interesting thing is that although much of the UK had a wet spring and summer the North West of Scotland and the Hebrides had spring and early summer that was notable for the lack of water. Many people were saying that they had the best summer anyone can remember, at least on Lewis. This is the Carloway River on the west side of the Isle of Lewis taken in mid-July:

    We haven't been out in a few weeks due to the lack of access with vehicles as land is about a foot of slushy mud really hope this winter is a cold dry one!

    Everything is soaked and too soft to move about on, shooting pretty much curtailed except from farm tracks.
    Fishing lakes are all either brim full, or flooded to the point the overflows can't cope with it.
    Also just had to cancel lots of work that was planned for winter time on one of the lakes as there is nowhere to pump the
    contents of a an acre pond, usually it goes into the ditch 15 feet away, but the ditch has been 3/4 full for a few weeks now.

    In the spring the EA and the Water Companies were saying that the water table was dangerously low and that rain would not be enough, now they are saying that the water table is saturated and that any rain will lead to flooding.
