Aquifers are a vital source of potable water all around globe. In Mexico City, over 70% of the potable water in the city comes from aquifers surrounding the city. These underground layers of earth and water are deeply connected to the landscape above. Influenced by the local climate and geology but also influencing the surface in the cases of subsidence and the intensified flooding that follows from overexploitation. Even as more and more wells extract water, the aquifers continue to recharge through multiple means only hindered by the land and sun.
