Woodland Reports Record-Low Groundwater Levels
Posted July 23rd, 2014 @ 2:10pm by KFBK News - Mary West

The city of Woodland is reporting record-low ground water levels as our statewide drought continues.

Woodland relies solely on groundwater for water supply and continuously monitors its wells to gauge water supply availability. 

Monitors show since April 2014, the groundwater level has dropped by a record 60 feet.

The June 2014 level is 69 feet -- the lowest June level ever recorded.

City officials say the community's conservation efforts have helped the situation from being worse.

During April-June this year, Woodland's average water use was 18 percent less than the average at the same time the past three years.
