Why Is Groundwater a Highly Overused Resource?

Groundwater is a highly overused resource because of the following reasons:

  1. Due to large and growing population and consequent greater demands for water and unequal access to it.
  2. To facilitate higher food grain production for large population, water resources are being over exploited to expand irrigated areas and dry season agriculture.
  3. In the housing societies or colonies in the cities, there is an arrangement of own ground water pumping devices to meet water needs.
