Majority of Delhi in Critical Zone as Groundwater Level Dips

Delhi is heading towards a serious situation as the continuously depleting level of groundwater in the last two decades has resulted in 90 per cent of the city being categorized as semi-critical or critical. The Central Ground Water Board has told the Supreme Court that the water level has been decreasing from 0.5 m to over 2 m per year at different places in Delhi and could lead to a crisis if not halted. Compiling data on groundwater levels from the year 2000 onwards, the board in its report said water levels at all its 20 monitoring stations have seen a steady decline with areas around Chhatarpur, Dwarka and the President's Estate hit the worst.
