    Look I believe in Ghosts, life after death and UFO's and I am quite open to the idea of water divining. All I can tell you is what happened with one bloke. The other thing is the renown Skeptic James Randy put up 10,000 for anyone who could show him above the statistical random chance that they could divine water. I saw a special on it. Heaps came forward to try. No one took home the money. I am not saying it is not true, just saying what I have seen of it so far.

    It would be under the hills beyond the town along the river too. On the near side it would flow towards the river and on the other side of the ridge it would flow away from the river.

    I'm just saying that finding water under your feet isn't very hard......it like finding ground under your feet. I remember placing a site for a water supply well for a friend. After she found a lot of water a friend of hers asked her if I'd used divining rods......she said "no he just pointed".

    This is something called a drainage divide.

    Plants and trees have an ability to search for water possibly by the sound it makes underground. The DNA or structure of wood could still retain that ability after it's no longer living.

    If the water is completely underground and no surface signs it would be like being blindfolded, you would have no idea where a stream or pool of water was until the divining rods were utilized...

    Actually you don't need divining rods to find groundwater.....and besides streams and pools/ponds are surface features.

    i have 'witched' wells over the years. don't use diving rods but rather use a supple Y branch from an indigenous tree on the property. strength of flow and depth are both indicated. steps counted from first quiver and movement of the point end of the stick 'til it's pointed straight down will give the depth of the moving water source and the strength of the quiver gives the flow volume . believe me, it works. haven't been wrong yet. couldn't tell you why/how i can do it but i can. and i always walk slowly diagonally west to east.

    and you cannot divine/witch underground water that isn't moving.

    I have an old friend who is a rock doctor and it is pretty amazing when he gets going. I am always blown away how differently he sees a landscape. I see a paddock with some hills, he sees what was there 100,000 years ago. It is no surprise a rock doctor can pick underground water just by looking at the lay of the land.

    When I was in university I spent at least 40 hours looking at beach sand under a microscope......you can say I have a different perspective of a beach than most. I could probably talk about it for a while too....:Whistle:.

    Just curious.....at your gas stations do you have these little "manhole" covers that say...."monitoring well do not fill"?

    Its easy based on the topography to find where the water is going to be most abundant. Its going to be there regardless of where you look....but for a water supply well you'd want the area with the highest yield.

    In the case of an environmental site like a gas station or hazardous waste site you'd just drill down to the water regardless of the yield.

    I worked in one for about 6 years. All I ever noticed was the fill holes and they usually had a very long dip stick. Don't remember anything like that anywhere I worked.

    Was this recently? In the US underground storage tanks are supposed to be covered by a concrete pad.....is it the same way there?

    Anyway if you see such things they are all drilled into the groundwater......no divining rods required.
