The great mudhole mystery part 2

So, we’ve gotten no closer to solving the mudhole mystery. We had these grand plans to dig a hole in the center to see where the water was coming from. Just one problem…

It rained like crazy the day before and everything was soaking wet. I was able to dig a slight ditch running to the existing swale and a ton of water ran off, but I don’t know if that was collected rain or something else.

This is what we are dealing with. Maybe on the next trip we will be able to figure more out.

  1. Looks like you have one of those artisian springs that flows from higher up… I have one in a road near here that, even in last autumn’s drought, still kept the road wet just in that spot. Sometimes, a heavy vehicle can break through a thin barrier, releasing the flow. Good luck,,, Vann
