Definition as written by Terry:
In practical terms, it's the point at which digging a hole becomes an exercise in futility, as it's filling with water faster than you can dig.
This can present quite a problem in areas where the water table is high (shallow), making it difficult to set fence posts or footings, or dig deep enough to set a septic tank. Not to mention it causes poor drainage in garden beds and lawns, especially during periods of heavy or extended rainfall.
