Letter to the editor | Rainmaker for wells

March 11, 2014 

Record and study water levels in all local wells in each community. Record and keep track of all the rain for at least one year, and determine whether there is a relationship between water levels in wells and the amount of rain that falls.

It appears when God created this earth, he created a relationship between water levels in wells and the amount of rain that falls.

The final goal is to preserve groundwater, and not pump wells too much.

I believe rain could be encouraged to fall by the following: prayers of a righteous person, tilling soil, so we find loose soil in all communities where you’re trying to make rain fall. Our goal is to trap water that falls so it becomes groundwater.

Set aside plots of soil 100 feet by 100 feet. Keep each plot tilled and encourage the dumping of waste water without harmful pollutants, such as animal urine and bath water, so that you can have the sun evaporate water out of the soil where water goes up into the atmosphere, condenses and comes back down as rain.

Develop a swamp (not a wetland) on the property.
