Whichever storm drain government agency would probably know the cause. For our pond the level changes due to so many factors. Less snow, means less snow melt. Less rain, same thing. New houses means water pulled from aquifer for home wells, but more surface water from septic systems. More paved roads means more surface water. Drainage ditches channelize water. So many factors. In many places in my area, if you dig a hole, it will fill with water. We have that much subsurface water. But in that same neighborhood, you might have to drill 600’ deep for a home well. Water is definitely complex. I think about it every spring when we begin outdoor construction projects.
