Worthington wells lose ground, ban remains

WORTHINGTON -- A lack of rainfall in the past week has caused four of Worthington's six wells in the Lake Bella wellfield to see a drop in water level, according to Worthington Public Utilities general manager Scott Hain.

On Friday, Well 26 showed no change in water level, with the top of the water still measuring 23 feet, 6 inches from ground level. The level is 1 foot, 10 inches short of where it needed to be this week to reach 90 percent of the 10-year average, and thereby be cause to lift the city's ban on nonessential watering.
