Truth and Reality

There will be water crisis in the coming days, there has been a decline in the ground water, know how much the ground water has decreased

Water crisis will be seen in the coming days. The reason for which is being told to be the rapid decrease of water under the earth. This information has come to light in a study. According to the study, about 450 cubic kilometers of groundwater decreased in North India from the year 2002 to 2021 and its quantity will decrease further in the near future due to climate change.

In a media report, Vikram Sarabhai Chair Professor of Civil Engineering and Earth Sciences at the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar and Chief Servant of the study, Vimal Mishra said that this is about 37 times the total water storage volume of the Indira Sagar Dam, India’s largest reservoir. During the study, the researchers found that there was an 8.5 percent decrease in rainfall during the monsoon season across North India during the period 1951-2021. During this period, the temperature in the winter season in this region has increased by 0.3 degrees Celsius.

Ground water recharge will decrease

At the same time, a team of researchers from Hyderabad-based National Geophysical Research Institute said that due to less rainfall during monsoon and rising temperatures during winter, the demand for water for irrigation will increase and this will lead to a decrease in ground water recharge, which will put more pressure on the already depleting ground water resources in North India.
