India’s groundwater drops to dangerous levels

India is the largest user of groundwater in the World, after China. More than 85% of drinking water and 60% of irrigated agriculture supplies are dependent on groundwater supply.Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 6.10.18 PM

India’s groundwater tables are dropping at an alarming rate. Over 16% of the country’s groundwater resources are ‘over-exploited’, according to Central Ground Water Board (CGWB) – the apex body under the Ministry of Water Resources.

We will soon run out of potable water if current trends continue, warns senior water official. Depleting groundwater levels the biggest threat to rural livelihoods and food security. According to World Bank, if we continue like this, in 20 years about 60% of all India’s aquifers will be in a critical condition. The increasing dependence on ground water as a reliable source of water has resulted in indiscriminate extraction in various parts of the country without due regard to the recharging capacities of aquifers and other environmental factors.

Ground Water map IndiaSouth, West and Central India have significantly lower water table than other regions. South has a frightening 30% of its groundwater table lower than 60 metres below the ground.

Groundwater is the most preferred source of water in India because of following reasons.

  • Its near universal availability
  • Dependability (unlike rain)
  • Low capital cost
  • Subsidized electricity to farmers(results low operation cost to pump water)

Groundwater extraction in some states –including Delhi, Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan – has reached 100%. In Delhi nearly 500,000 illegal bore wells suck up the city’s groundwater. Almost 16% of Delhi’s urban households and 30% of its rural ones don’t have sufficient drinking water throughout the year, according to a National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) study.

Many a time, weak monsoons due to climate change have further eroded India’s groundwater reserves. Groundwater recharge mainly depends on rainfall, so deficient rains mean less groundwater availability. Weak monsoon also leads farmers to draw deeper from groundwater, which pushes water tables down further.

According to Shri Ayyappa Masagi, (founder of Water Literacy Foundation) ‘solution for this critical challenge is available, but solution can be adopted only if community, industry and government supports. City like Bangalore could become water surplus within 2 years if every property harvest rain & grey water properly and rain water fallen on street is recharged back to soil. Namesake adoption of rainwater harvesting will not help, we have to recharge all four levels of water in soil, when doing rainwater harvesting’.

Surely, adoption of rain water harvesting, responsible farming and sustainable urban planning will bring substantial change in situation. In parallel, Government policy & stringent regulations to protect groundwater will play important role in protecting groundwater resources across the nation.

India’s Worsening Water Crisis

India has just 4% of the World’s fresh water- but 16% of the global population.

According to The World Bank, India is the largest user of ground water in the world, after China. If something is not done soon, an estimated 114 million Indians will soon face desperate domestic, agricultural and industrial shortages.

Water Scarcity
Groundwater serves as a vital buffer against the volatility of monsoon rains, and India’s falling water table therefore threatens catastrophe. 60 percent of north India’s irrigated agriculture is dependent on ground water, as is 85 percent of the region’s drinking water. The World Bank predicts that India only has 20 years before its aquifers will reach “critical condition” – when demand for water will outstrip supply – an eventuality that will devastate the region’s food security, economic growth and livelihoods.

Public health is also seriously at risk. The demand for safe drinking water in India is already high, and the situation will only grow more acute as levels drop further. The World Health Organization reports that 97 million Indians lack access to safe drinking water, while 21 percent of the country’s communicable diseases are transferred by the use of unclean water.

In their 2013 Outlook Report, the Asian Development Bank calculated India’s water security based on household, economic, urban and environmental needs, and concluded that India’s water prospects are “hazardous.” According to the report, a comprehensive and immediate program of investment, regulation, and law enforcement is necessary. Private-sector groups agree.

The 2030 Water Resources Group, made up of private companies, argues that the “water gap” (between insufficient supply and excess demand) in Asia will only close once countries limit the water-intensity of their economies. In Indian industry, dam construction for hydropower plants and large agribusiness landholdings account for the majority of the country’s water demands.

For India to be water secure, it would need to ensure long-term access that is affordable, equitable, efficient and sustainable. Major industrial, agricultural and domestic water reform is therefore necessary.
