In June, the groundwater authority in Agra used a piezometer to examine the groundwater level before the monsoon and came to unexpected results. In Amarpura in the Shahganj area, the water level dropped 12 meters in one year, while in the Saiya and Kukathala areas the water level dropped more than 9 meters. In Kalal Kheria, Torah area on Fatehabad Road, the water table has fallen by up to 9 meters. Instead of saving rainwater, the harmful effects of waste are in the foreground. In the city, 55 percent of the area has no water authority line. In such a situation, 55 percent of the city is dependent on groundwater. The groundwater is discharged to a large extent by submersible pumps.

Its effect was shown by a huge drop in the water table. The groundwater authority created the pre-monsoon report 2021, in which the groundwater level drops from the city to the country by up to 12 meters. The groundwater has dropped from 3 to 10 meters, that is, 10 feet to 30 feet, in most places in the city.

Boring of 60,000 submersible pumps

In a year, submersible pumps will have to be re-drilled because of the groundwater level reaching into the underworld. Colonies of Azampada, Balajipuram, Albertia, Vinay Nagar, Shyam Nagar, Maruti Estate, Subhash Nagar, Kamla Nagar, Amar Vihar, Fatehabad Road, near Amarpura, and old wells from submersible pumps in Shastripuram have dried up. Because of this, people have to make new holes for water. The new wells will be drilled at a depth of 300 to 350 feet for which only a 12-stage submersible pump with 2 to 3 kW power is effective. More than 60,000 such submersible pumps have to be re-drilled in May-June.

arbitrarily exploit
The geologist Ravikant said that groundwater is arbitrarily exploited, but rainwater is not collected in this ratio. Wherever water has stopped in ponds and fields, the water level improves. The degradation is minimal, but more water is withdrawn from the soil in newly developed areas. Attempts should be made to bring rainwater to the ground at all costs, only then will it be better.
