In my map there are no rivers and the only water source I have is some small lakes. There supposed to be an aquifer but I haven't come across it yet. How can I find it or increase my chances of finding it?
Are they supposed fill the entire z-level? I have dug a vertical exploratory shaft 100 levels deep but still all I have found so far are stone and metal tiles. Am I supposed to also search for it horizontally? Wiki is not clear on this.
