    Streams and ponds are easy to find......but to find groundwater all you need is the appropriate drill rig for the geological conditions and the purpose you are looking for it..

    All you need is divining rods to find the water, a drill rig to drill for it after you find it...:laugh8:

    A lot of eucalyptus have extremely long roots that extend many metres away from the trunk and relatively close to the surface. This helps them find underground water.

    There wouldn't have been any aboriginal food without water. So people learnt to harvest water from the roots of various trees such as the red or blue mallee. They also learnt to collect and drain the dew drops from the plants.

    When all the other sources were exhausted, Aborigines could even squeeze out the precious liquid from the "water holding" frogs. This is a frog species that has large amounts of water stored in its body. They can be found below the surface of claypan wetlands

    Is that some kind of Tasmanian religious concept?

    No just running water under your house does not equate with good vibes . Did you see the Aboriginal video I posted for you on their water gathering ?

    No I didn't see it......so that's why bad vibes are all over the world......I guess especially in Western Egypt and Libya. Like I said there is groundwater under the town along the river.

    No just under my house. It would be touching on the supernatural / paranormal and I know you do not want to go there.

    Actually I believe in the paranormal...but groundwater being under the ground isn't paranormal.

    Maybe its a tasmania thing that its only under your house......:rofl:

    Actually I do.....I'm just not as religious as you. I also believe in intelligent races of ETs from beyond our solar system, bigfoot and some cryptids.

    However, I do believe things I've seen with my own eyes......so I'll stop bothering you.

    My grandfather did divining. He always use willow sticks.
    He also would measure 10 feet for every bob of the stick.
    He helped a farmer friend find water close to the ground after well installers told the farmer he could not find water any closer that 300 feet from the surface.
    My grandfather found water at about 80 feet only about 30 feet from his barn. A well installer skeptically drilled there and at exactly 80 feet they hit water and much to their disbelief.

    Projected groundwater contour maps are not always accurate.....also well drillers are just that. Seldom did I meet one that knew much about geology and hydrology.

    How far away from the barn were the drillers looking? Was this well drilled in soil or bedrock?

    Not sure how far from the barn. I believe he said the farm was near New Richmond, Wis..
    It was soil.

    He had done this back in the fifties and early sixties.
    He never told me the year he had done it. He did it for many local and area farmers back then.
    My grandfather has been gone since 1984.

    My last grand parent grew up in Thorp Wisconsin......he passed in 1990.

    Sure it wasn't a little farther east between Connersville and Boyceville? The groundwater in the New Richmond area looks like it would be fairly shallow under the town.
