Is it good to pump water into a water table?

    Yes and no.  For the immediate receivers of the dried out water table, replenishing it with an outside source of water is very beneficial.  However, it isn’t beneficial because this water must be taken from somewhere else. 

    The best solution would be to use the water in a certain water table in such a way that it can be used sustainably so that it can be replenished naturally.

    An example of a sustainable source would be to replenish a depleted aquifer with recycled waste water.  This gives the water a chance to further filter and become a more potable source, as well as refilling the aquifer.  An example of this is the Irvine Ranch Water District’s groundwater replenishment system that both refills the aquifer and acts as a buffer against ocean water intrusion into the water table.
