Term applied to periods of less than average precipitation over a certain period of time.Droughts do not negatively impact the quality of water within groundwater. In the off-chance that a person decides to drill up large wells in the ground to collect water during times of droughts, then that person will find more mineralized water. This occurrence happens due to the water residing the ground for longer periods and its likelihood of absorbing the characteristics of the encompassing rock formations. The homeowners are also capable of attaining higher quality water from effectively built wells that drilled deeper underground, for the reason because deeper wells have better protection from contaminants that usually occupy near the surface.
