Environmental impact of pumping water out of the ground

Hi, I have a person on Facebook who is asking what the long term consequences are of "pumping water out of the ground faster than it falls out of the sky in areas of ever increasing human population. Think about the long-term consequences!"

Could anyone point me to some literature/a stance we have on the impact that our projects have on the environment?

Many thanks,

Asha

I think that was more of a rhetorical question :)

The key word is "groundwater over-abstraction" and an issue in many dry areas in the world.
