In Kabul, residents chase receding groundwater

Years of conflict coupled with an arid landscape have left residents of Kabul, Afghanistan, facing immense water shortages. The capital city, which lies in the Kabul River Basin, is no stranger to water scarcity. Between the 1960s and early 2000s, groundwater levels fell by 6-7 meters in several parts of Kabul. Since then, water levels have continued to plummet.
