    Well, that would be the water table, although the water table does not have to make it up into the soil.  It can lie below the soil-bedrock contact.  The water table is the surface of water that fills everything (sediments and rock) below it.  Basically the same as a lake, but the lake is filled with dirt so no water reaches surface.
