Water level is dropping at alarming rate in Patna

As per this report, it seems that water table is going down in Patna, at the rate of 13 cm per year.
This is already showing its impact in PATNA as people have to start using submersible pumps to get groundwater.

This is a long term threat to Bihar and India's food and social security.

Water conservation and urban planning are needed urgently.
