Semantics, possibly.  It is continually being recharged
"upstream," but if depletion continually exceeds recharge, it
will be an underground Colorado River--the first upstream users
(in Wyoming, for instance) hardly feeling the difference, but
the "downstream" users being left with the barest trickle in
their well, much like the Colorado now peters out before reaching
the ocean.
