 The ground water is recharged by different sources and one common process. The water of rivers, lakes, canals, irrigation and rain entered into earth crust and reached to the water table through the process of infiltration where it get stored between the rock beds.

Hi  Sukhmeet

The rainwater and water from other sources such as rivers and ponds seeps through the soil and fills the empty spaces and cracks depp below the ground . This process of seeping water into the ground is known as infiltration.Thus groundwater gets recharged by this process.

Cheers!!

Best of luck for your exams

We need to be worried about the wastage during the supply of water through pipes, the leaking taps in buildings and other places. Unnecessary use of water and overdrawing from groundwater should be avoided. Recharge of water to the ground should be increased.

Rainwater and the water from water bodies on earth 's surface passes through the soil by the process by infiltration. The infiltrated water then gets accumulated in the aquifer deep under the ground. There are some layers of impermeable rocks which prevent the water in the aquifer from seeping down further. In this way the ground water is recharged.
