Abstract India is seeing a significant reduction in groundwater levels,
attributed to changes in agricultural techniques, urbanization, and unsustainable
water exploitation. This puts agriculture, the security of the water supply, and the
daily lives of nearly 1.5 billion people in danger. The study explores the varied
terrain of India, the different types of soil, and how heat waves and rainfall
patterns are affected by climate change. The water crises in Chennai and
Bengaluru highlight the need for strict water management techniques in the
socioeconomic environment. In addition, the health consequences of tainted
groundwater, which may contain dangerous substances like arsenic and
chromium, demand prompt attention for appropriate disposal and surveillance to protect the public's health and welfare.
Keywords Groundwater depletion, Urban expansion, Agriculture, Water extraction, Water security, Climate change, Heatwaves, Rainfall patterns, Topography, Soil types, Socio-economic, Water crises, Health risk, Contaminated groundwater, Water management, Sustainable practices.
