Question

What can happen to the water level if too many wells are placed together?
  1. The water table will rise
  2. The water table will fall
  3. The rivers will all run dry
  4. There will be a reduction in rainfall


Solution

The correct option is B The water table will fall
Rainwater seeps into the ground recharging groundwater by the process of infiltration. Water storing structures like wells draw groundwater. Too many wells can cause depletion of the water table, replenishment of which is a slow process.
