Groundwater: Manage or Perish
The specter of global climate change and erratic rainfall pattern makes one ponder-how are we going to manage our water? Most of us remain under a false notion that groundwater in unlimited and we can keep drawing as much as we need. It should always be remembered that groundwater is like a bank account. If you keep on withdrawing money from your account without depositing any, you turn in to red in no time. Similarly if there is less or no rainfall or if the surfaces of the habitats are all concretized rain water does not reach the groundwater reservoirs and the groundwater account turns red.
