Whether or not water is a renewable resource is an issue mostly of semantics. Officially, it would seem as if water is a renewable resource because it covers up so much of the earth’s surface. Water can qualify as a renewable material (also non-renewable) when carefully controlled usage, treatment, and release are followed. If not, it would become a non-renewable resource at that location. For example, groundwater could be removed from an aquifer at a rate greater than the sustainable recharge. Removal of water from the pore spaces may cause permanent compaction (subsidence) that cannot be renewed.
