Stephan Riess (1898-1985) was a Bavarian-born mining engineer and geologist who emigrated to the United States in 1923. While working in a deep mine in the 1930's, Riess was amazed, after a load of dynamite was set off, to see water gushing out of nowhere in such quantities that pumps installed to remove it at the rate of 25,000 gallons per minute could not make a dent in it.
