The drought not only affects crops and plants. Itgalso may be causing problems for your home and other buildings. “Sticking doors or windows and cracks .in walls may be indications that the building is shifting due to soil shrinkage,” says Ken Hellevang, North Dakota State University Ex- tension agricultural engineer. As clay or other fine—particle soils dry, they shrink, creating gaps around the basement walls. This space ex— poses more of the soil to airflow, which increases the amount of mois- ture removal. A gap along the wall may, through time, allow airflow that will dry the soil under the foundation. The foun- dation’s support is removed as the soil shrinks, which will cause the building to shift and may stress the concrete enough to cause a crack to form. . This also will occur around con- crete slabs if the support base is clay or other fine-particle soil that swells and shrinks with changes in moisture ABBREVIATED NOTICE OF INTENT To AMEND ADMINISTRATIVE RULES RELATING TO ' N.DAC.

The gap between the soil and basement wall also allows water from rain to run down the 'wall and may result in water getting into the basement. To minimize these problems, Hellevang recommends maintaining a relatively constant moisture content in the soil around the house or other building. Water the soil evenly and around the entire foundation during extended dry periods. “Do not apply water directly into the gap because this may cause water intrusion into the basement,” he says. “Instead, apply water 1 to 2 feet away from the foundation edge.
