QUESTION: What does science say about water witching? ANSWER: Water witching, often called dowsing, is supposedly a way to locate water which lies underground. Holding a y-shaped willow stick, the dowser walks over the ground in the general area where a well is to be dug. If the stick suddenly points to the ground, as in our second picture, a supply of water is said to lie directly beneath. Wells are then dug at that exact spot. Many people belive in dowsing; others do not. There is no doubt that many good wells are located in this way; but the skeptics say that, in some areas, there is so much water underground that the dowser is pretty apt to find water everywhere. A government pamphlet on water witching states that dowsers as usually sincere people who really believe they can find water by using their forked sticks. But careful studies of the subject conclude, that although many wells have been found in this way, dowsing is not a reliable system by which to locate underground water. (Jerry Ahlbrandt of Fort Collins, Colo., wins today's combined prize of Compton's Illustrated Science Dictionary plus $10 cash for this question.
