  • In this Aug. 7, 2012 photo, Randy Grebke of Kohnen Concrete Products, left, helps out with a water well drilling crew on a site which he witched for water in Huey, Ill. Many well drillers still witch or divine for water, Gebke included. Some, like Gebke, use small wires, others have a preference for a particular kind of wood. Many find themselves busier than they have been in years as drought grips much of the country.
