Discuss how increasing population causes depletion of water table?
Increasing population creates demand for construction of houses, shops, offices, roads and pavements. This decreases the open areas like parks, and playgrounds which affects the seepage of rainwater into the ground. Also, increasing population consumes more water for all their activities. So, the increasing population ends up consuming more groundwater as well as allowing lesser water to seep into the ground. This results in depletion of water table.
