Groundwater Management – Regulation and control of underground water levels, pollution prevention and supervision of ownership
The groundwater needed to be managed to stop arguments (groundwater management). If groundwater levels aren't controlled there may be none left.
When it rains, some of the water infiltrates the soil and goes underground. This is known as groundwater, and it is a vital resource.
Groundwater is managed by preventing contamination, limiting its use and ensuring that natural regeneration can take place.
Excess pumping of groundwater can exhaust the resource.
Most countries have an agency or organisation that regulates the use of groundwater. For instance, in the UK, the Environment Agency has the responsibility of managing groundwater.
In developing countries, groundwater scarcity and pollution disproportionately affect the poor because they are often not able to keep up with sinking groundwater levels or to find alternative sources.
