    Forgive me if this is posted in the wrong section. Figured after lurking for quite some time that I should share when I can! I made it into two posts so the whole article could be posted.

    it's worse than that ground water is being depleted in many areas a major source for crop irrigation about 30%

    look at Chicago

    "Chicago has been using groundwater since at least 1864 and groundwater has been the sole source of drinking water for about 8.2 million people in the Great Lakes watershed. This long-term pumping has lowered groundwater levels by as much as 900 feet."

    Forgive the posting the wrong forum. I'm new to the forum (obviously) and also to prepping. This article just makes me further believe that preps are a necessity!
