Answer

Two causes that lead to a decrease in ground water level are:

  • The amount of rainfall in most regions has decreased. This has happened due to many factors. Some of them are deforestation, increase in construction activity, etc.
  • As the amount of rainfall decreases, farmers depend more on ground water for irrigation Hence, level of ground water is constantly decreasing.
