Oil wells /drilling  uses  incredible amounts of water... i wonder if that is having a cumulative effect in the region?

It is much more misuse and waste, these things are not the smartest to do in a desert:

fountains could use the same water over and over ,  minus evaporation  , but  oil wells etc.  ruin, and evaporate, billions of gallons of water with their use.      But ya,  lots of water is wasted for appearance sake.    Like in the U.S.  .. huge lawns just don't make sense in deserts?  

(or in desserts either  lol)

Aquifers are getting low everywhere, there is a place I believe in California the ground has sunk and they think its because of lower water levels.  In some places they pump out of it to irrigate, especially in droughts, so same thing is happening here.  It just never fills back up as fast as we use it.  Yet some people don't see population as a problem, that should concern the world.
