Is there any scientific evidence for dowsing? Keith Barber, Isle of Wight

There is but it doesn’t reveal supernatural powers. Dowsing uses tools that amplify small movements. For example, the traditional ‘divining rod’ is a forked twig held in tension so that small hand movements make it tip up or down. Another method uses two lengths of wire bent into an L shape. The dowser holds the short ends, leaving the longs ends finely balanced enough to cross or part with the slightest tilt of the hands.

There is some evidence that dowsers can find water or oil when more traditional methods have failed, which seems miraculous. But experiments show that this works only when the dowser has some unconscious knowledge of where the target is. For example, they might be using clues from vegetation, geography or temperature. They might not realise what they’re doing, and so believe in the supernatural power of the rods. Experiments have been done that eliminate these possibilities, by running water through one of 10 pipes laid underground, or moving the position of water pipes. Under such controlled conditions dowsers do not succeed.

Water Rights in Oregon
Under Oregon law, all water is publicly owned. With some exceptions, cities, farmers, factory owners and other users must obtain a permit or water right from the Water Resources Department to use water from any source— whether it is underground, or from lakes or streams. Landowners with water flowing past, through, or under their property do not automatically have the right to use that water without a permit from the Department.
