Groundwater exists in an underground stratum of porous rock (aquifer). Groundwater and surface water are closely linked; water pumped onto uplands from a surface source will ultimately enter groundwater. Overexploitation of ground water can lead to saline intrusions and land subsidence. Successfully managing groundwater mainly requires dealing with human needs and perceptions; balancing both the timing and quantity of required water removals.
