What is going to happen when fossil water runs out?



  1. 0 Votes

    Fossil water is water sealed in an underground aquifer. It is a non-renewable resource and can sometimes contain dangerous chemicals, be salty, and even radioactive, due to long periods of time sealed away from the surface. Libya and other middle eastern/north African countries have relied on fossil water reserves which are now running low. Parts of the former USSR, India, China and Mexico also rely on this type of water reserve. Should the water run out, the main effects would be in these countries, and in the form of water rights bargaining and an increase in desalinization plants.
