    No. As long as there isn't much standing water when you pour the 
concrete; not much being a couple of inches or less. That's not much water as 
these things go.

    Sure, it depends on where the water table is and what time of year. I've 
worked in dry holes and I've worked in holes that had to be pumped everyday 
of the foot or more water that came in overnight. I wouldn't worry about it.
