Questions & Answers

Q: Is it true that the freshwater stored in the ground is more abundant than that present in rivers and lakes globally?

Yes, groundwater is a significant source of freshwater as it contains a considerable amount of water for various purposes.

Q: Is water shortage only a problem faced by people in rural areas?

No, water shortage is a prevalent issue in both rural and urban areas, with many places experiencing scarcity even in big cities.

Q: Is water from rivers the only source used for irrigation in fields?

No, irrigation can also be done using rainwater, water from nearby reservoirs like rivers, ponds, and lakes, as well as groundwater, by employing modern irrigation techniques.

Q: How is groundwater recharged?

Groundwater is recharged through various sources, primarily rainfall, where water seeps into the soil and fills the gaps between soil particles and rocks. Water reservoirs such as rivers, oceans, and lakes also contribute to groundwater recharge.

Q: What could be the long-term impact on the water table if there are ten tube wells in a lane with 50 houses?

The excessive use of groundwater caused by the numerous tube wells can lead to the depletion of the water table in that particular area, resulting in a scarcity of groundwater.

Q: How can the use of water be minimized while maintaining a garden?

To minimize water usage in gardening, one can use a watering can instead of a hose pipe or container. Additionally, following drip irrigation techniques can save water by providing droplets of water directly to the plants.
