Where is water going?

I remain curious in my research and imagination, but in addition to the lack of rainfall in some areas across the globe, can it be possible that while lakes, wells and rivers of those locations are also running dry is because depleted oil well cavities are being replaced with ground potable water?

By no means do I profess to be a geophysicist, but something tells me that there is a link of mechanism in those areas of Earth’s failure.

I remain puzzled at this environmental catastrophe.
