the demand for freshwater has increased due to the growth of the population.The demand for water has increased due to the variation in climate due to changes in temperature and precipitation. As the climate becomes warmer, evaporation rates increase, resulting in decreased supply of fresh water. In recent years, changes in life styles and eating habits results in the requirement of a higher consumption of water per capita. The generation and consumption of biofuels, due to the growth of the population has also progressed strongly with a significant impact on water demand.Thus, the use of groundwater has increased significantly.
