Could Drought Play A Factor In The California Earthquakes?

In a previous blog, we talked about earthquakes and how they affect well water and other water sources. However, after doing a little research, what if the lack of water could be playing a role in earthquakes?

According to theguardian.com, the lack of groundwater might be playing a rolde in earthquakes. As they state, "A new study, published in Nature on Wednesday, said groundwater depletion in California's Central Valley – the heart of its agricultural industry – is putting additional pressures on the fault, and promoting the chances of an earthquake."

With the California population continually growing, the chances of ground water be replenished is becoming more and more difficult.  With this growing problem, the fault lines will continue to have pressure placed on them.

Earthquakes are a reminder that natural changes in our environment and earth can and will affect our drinking water, making testing that much more important. While we may not have earthquakes at the same magnitude like West Coast locations, even small earthquakes can change your well water. If your area has been affected by a earthquake, make sure you contact your local CT water company like Aqua Pump for more information, steps to take and possible water testing.

We will continue to think of those affected by the most recent Southern California earthquake and will continue to monitor water tables here in Connecticut and the East Coast. Our fault lines and data can teach us so much about water changes and future potential threats.

For more information, feel free to call Aqua Pump at (860) 684-5349.
