72 year old Mr Zhang

Mr Zhang, 72, explains the problem with limited water, "Our crops certainly need more water, but we are limited by the governments restrictions. The water table in our well has dropped from 60 metres depth to 70 in five years." Groundwater consumption has increased as water no longer flows in rivers as there is no adequate re-supply of surface water.
