Can aquifers be replenished if they are overdrawn?

    Aquifers rely on ground water. If an aquifer is overdrawn, and there isn’t water coming up through the cracks or the ground, it is possible that the aquifer will be replenished given enough time. As long as the water table has a chance to rise again, the aquifer will be useable once more.

    Unfortunately, the only way aquifers can be naturally replenished is to leave them alone and allow rain water and other precipitation to trickle down and replenish the water supply. Perhaps there are ways of diverting water from other sources but this in and of itself seems counterintuitive.
