Drought: Feeling it in the wells PDF Print
Sunday, 28 October 2007 19:00

Wells are drying up- and some North Carolinians are being forced to buy water or gather it from creeks and community streams.

According to the National Ground Water Association, over 900,000 North Carolina homes rely on well water.
