Hello All new member with Questions
Has any body ever dug a privy that was below the water table and it filled up as you dug deeper?

I've haven't ever either, but I would think a bilge pump would help perhaps? Depends how far below the water table and the rate at which it fills with water.

I was thinking of a bilge pump too.  Not sure if it would work.  I have never done that type of digging.

EEeeewwww the thought of it.  But, no doubt a lot of things get dropped into a privy!  Even the chemical ones of current day!

The old ones where it's 'contents' would certainly be dissolved, and perhaps some quite interesting finds.

I have dug a privy or two,never ran into water, you must have a high water table,bilge pumps are not that good(the kind used for boats) but a good irrigation pump would do the job real good, a swimming pool pump would be a cheap way to go,you can find them at yard sales, second hand stores,scrap yards. lots of luck

i have seen areas with t-hunting markers and tried to initiate digging but we are helpless to counter the fast flow of water due to our incapacity to rent devices

Yes.  Dig it with one section a few feet deeper than the rest of the pit you are digging.  If you have power, get an old bucket and drill holes in it, small, and put a sump pump inside of it and drain your pit.  Even if you dont have a sump, wait til the dryest time of year and bucket the water out.  It is messy but you can do it.  I have dug along the Mississippi and had constant water to deal with...
