Sewer pipes have always dewatered areas simply because they exist. Water flows outside of the new pipe in voids created during construction. It happens every time. Dig around any old sewer pipe, its an unending underground river.

And no, it wont stop , It will keep drawing down the aquifer till things equilize out. WBL is a memory. Pump all the water you want into it. It wont help.

Years ago Lake Phalen was drying up. I believe they sealed the leaks by dumping Bentonite into the lake , Would something like that work here?
My dad was a boy at the time and remembers this. I'm trying to research this, can you tell me anything about it and the year?
