India’s declining groundwater resources are the product of a number of drivers.
Utilization of groundwater facilitates irrigated agriculture in areas far from rivers; in fact, this was key to the agricultural “green revolution” that occurred from the mid 1960s.
In places where surface water is available but unsafe for drinking or farming—more than 70% of India’s surface water resources are polluted by human waste or toxic chemicals
groundwater has often been seen as a safe alternative.
Urban water supply infrastructure is often poor and unreliable: well drilling is typically the most economical means of obtaining household water.
In Delhi, the local government estimates that 40% of the water transmitted through the mains system is lost through leakages ; for many, the only other alternative to bores are expensive supplies purchased from water-trucks.
MUMBAI: The hunter has become the hunted. In the second-largest deal ever in the Indian pharma industry, US-based Abbott Laboratories has acquired the pharmaceuticals solution business of Piramal Healthcare for $3.72 billion (Rs 17,500 crore).

I looked at the water found on Mars thread and was thinking. They found water, but what processes will be needed to make it usable. Then there is money to invest in this “ATM” machines so we can pay more, but cannot make seawater drinkable profitably for use?
