Will watering soil be enough to restore nutrients?

    No, and in fact overwatering can cause soil to be swept away, taking nutrients with it. This in turn can lead to streams polluted with sediment, which makes it harder for light to get through the water, and can also cause deadly algal blooms, which can choke out all other life. This is especially bad if you’re using artificial fertilizers. In addition, overwatering can waterlog the soil, which will kill the roots of whatever plant you’re growing in it.

    I agree, this is a problem in farming areas called leeching. Too much water takes the minerals and other things out of the soil and they in turn will work their way into the groundwater.
