  1. I live on the top of a hill in the fingerlakes NY.Even more than sound now my water is being effected! We had some kind of underground shift happen on Sat 3/9/2013 that caused our well to empty so we switched to the other well and suddenly a foul sulfur came out with the water that was so strong my boys ran from the barn. The next morning on the 10th that well dropped empty so we switched back to find the original well had recovered. This has never happened before except with our 30 foot shallow well late last summer when a 2 1/2 foot dia. sinkhole appeared near our house.  We lost water in that 30 foot well when the sinkhole appeared but it recovered soon after. Looked for more sinkholes but too much snow on the ground to see much now! The crust is truly shifting!
