SOUTHBURY, Conn. (WTNH) --Experts said that dry weather conditions have caused some issues with well water, so conserving water is important.
So far, 2012 has been a very dry year. According to Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Gil Simmons, Connecticut is behind five through seven inches of rain for 2012.
Experts said they have already had phone calls from folks who rely on well water.
"You must like from a business standpoint when there's a lack of rain. I'm going to take a ribbon for this, yeah," said Frank Kosheluk of Kosheluk Pump Service .
Kosheluk said that although it has been a dry year, Connecticut hasn't reached the dry point where it was three years ago.
"It was, I think on record one of the worst droughts in 100 years and we drilled quite a bit of wells at that time, for the most part, if you shut these wells off for an hour or two the water will come back in the well," said Kosheluk.
Three years ago the water wasn't coming back after the wells had been shut off for several hours.
"When it gets really bad, you're not even going to have enough water to take a shower," said Kosheluk.
Experts said it's only April, and the dryness level is that of August. The record low amount of snowfall and rainfall isn't helping anyone.
According to the US, Geological Survey, ground water is the source of about 38 percent of the water that county and city water departments supply to households and businesses. It provides drinking water for more than 97 percent of the rural population who do not get their water delivered to them from a private water company.
Kosheluk said it is important to start conserving water now, or it will mean more calls to the experts, and more money spent.
Hang laundry out to dry, take shorter showers, and don't hook up sprinklers and let it run for two hours.
Kosheluk said don't neglect your lawn, just run the water for a few minutes at a time and prioritize.
