What is Groundwater Flooding?

Many areas in Blaine County experience groundwater flooding. The porous soils allow water to easily move to the surface. A significant amount of rain in the fall can sometimes lead to groundwater flooding the following spring. 

Groundwater flooding is very slow to arrive and leave. People typically have time to move items to higher ground when groundwater flooding occurs.
