Groundwater reserves in Tehran Province have fallen by 150 million cubic meters per annum, the director for water reserves conservation at the Regional Water Company of Tehran said.
“In all parts of the province, there is a negative balance in groundwater resources, which means the extraction of water from aquifers is much higher than the volume of water added to them,” Hassan Zahmatkesh was also quoted as saying by ILNA on Monday.  Zahmatkesh noted that Varamin Plain, 40 kilometers southeast of the capital Tehran, account for about 70 million cubic meters of water shortage and the rest pertains to other plains in the province. The official noted that the province has 10 plains, all of which are in critical condition.
