Tilshead Borehole Levels: 23rd January 2022

A very dry week, but despite this, the water levels in the aquifer have continued to rise at a steady rate. It is a very good example of just how long it takes for water falling on the ground surface...

Tilshead Borehole Levels: 16th January 2022

Another damp week, certainly the early part of it, and the water levels have continued to rise and just about maintain a parallel track with the 8-year average.  The water level is now where we...

Tilshead Borehole Levels: 9th January 2022

What a difference a week can make.  The rate-of-rise in the water level of the Tilshead aquifer has accelerated four-fold from the previous week; from 1 metre/month to 1 metre per week.  That all...

Tilshead Borehole Levels: 2nd January 2022

Happy New Year to you all.  I hope 2022 is a much better year for you all than was 2021.  The year started with temperatures more reminiscent of autumn than winter, though they aren't going to last...

Although we had a little rain at the start of the week, it had relatively little impact on the water level in the aquifer.  In fact, the rate of filling dropped off as the week progressed and we are...

Tilshead Borehole Levels: 5th December 2021

This is the first bulletin for the 2021-2022 flood season.  So far, despite what has seemed like a lot of rain over the autumn, water levels in the River Till are only a fraction above the 8-year...

Tilshead Borehole Levels: 28th March 2021

Well, we are pretty much at the end of the month and so this will be the last bulletin of the 2020-2021 flood season; unless, of course, we are subject to a deluge of biblical proportions over the...

Tilshead Borehole Levels: 21st March 2021

Another dry week and certainly one that was drier than predicted.  Water levels in the aquifer have continued to fall steadily throughout the week and that trend shows every sign of continuing next...
