What are the uses of ground water? Why availability of ground water keeps on reducing?

Answer:

Ground water is mainly used by the local people for the purpose of:

i. Irrigation (agriculture)

ii. Industrial use

iii. Domestic use 

Formation of large dams and canals which cover large land surfaces results in decline of ground water, thus reducing its availability to local people.
