groundwater levels precariously reducing in Pakistan: PCRWR

A recent report Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources showed that groundwater, one of the best natural resources for irrigation and the food industry, is reducing sooner than expected in Pakistan because it is being overused.

The council has warned that Pakistan may run out of groundwater in a few years if authorities don’t come up with a way to stop people from installing water pumps to their liking.

This results in an unequal distribution of water and people aren’t charged for using excessive water either. The report suggested that industrial units should be inspected and then allowed to divert specific amounts of water.

More than 60 million people in Pakistan are at high risk from arsenic found in the groundwater. According to a 2018 CGTN report, long-term exposure to the aforementioned chemical can cause serious health conditions.
