Bengaluru is facing an acute and growing water crisis, and per reports that by 2025 the city may need to be evacuated. Borewells are being dug deeper and deeper even more than 1,000 feet deep, and in places it is multiple attempts as earlier ones become dry. Both in the city and state, while rainfall is around 13-15 centimeters per year, borewells are drawing water at three to four times. The expected causes and solutions are population growth, consumption growth, buildings and development but also poor planning on the part the city. Sadly, the rural areas are suffering even more and declining groundwater levels are reducing how much agricultural land can be cultivated.
