Groundwater passes beneath political boundaries. Countries on one side of a border can pump groundwater from a shared aquifer, thus importing vast quantities of economically valuable water without permission. There are fewer than 10 formal and informal agreements worldwide for transboundary aquifers. Only one aquifer, the Genevese shared by France and Switzerland can be considered a true management agreement.
