Can rising sea levels destroy water tables?

    Because freshwater sits on top of salt water, usually if sea level rises, the freshwater on top of it would also rise. However, in areas where there is drought, it may be that wells that currently draw water during a drought would begin to pull salt water. In areas of high elevation, this would mean drilling new, more shallow wells. In very very low elevation areas, this means less overall freshwater available.
