The Casels lawn looks lush and green, no thanks to their well they paid thousands for two years ago.
"It was dry, and we called the person who dug our well. He couldn't dip any deeper," said homeowner Cami Casel.
They, like many homeowners, are paying to hook up to city water now. Instead of a $35 a month water bill, they are paying close to $200.
Superior Landscape Management is seeing dried up wells all over the area. Three or four a day are turning up.
"Some are holding on by a toenail," said Superior's Brad Davenport.
Some homeowners are digging deeper to look for water, others are biting the bullet and paying for city water and some are simply waiting, as their lawn dies, and praying for rain.
Landscape experts say without water you will lose part of your lawn, but most of it should recover in the fall.
