Aquifers in our area aren’t just big underground lakes. They are more like a combination of porous honeycombed rock, cracks, fissures, and caverns.
When you damage one section, it can be pretty challenging to guess what else you might affect because of that damage. It’s been discovered that the Blanco River actually feeds Barton Springs in Austin, via the aquifers.
If you enjoy having water to drink, it would be wise to protect our aquifers.
