Wells running dry amid hot summer season in Vermont
Sep. 07, 2018
ISLE LA MOTTE, Vt. (AP) — A hot summer is drying up wells across northern Vermont and leaving many without running water.
Isle La Motte resident Cathy Tudhope says she's gone 11 weeks without running water since her well ran dry in June. WCAX-TV reports the state says it is getting a lot of calls about dried-up wells all across the region of northern Vermont.
Both Vermont officials and the National Weather Service place blame on a moderate drought affecting the region.
Claude Chevalier of Chevalier Drilling says he's seen increased demand from people seeking more water from deeper wells.
Tudhope says Chevalier is expected to drill a new well for her next week.
