Concerns over the lowering of the ground water table during the mining process appear to be based on outdated figures. A lithium battery for an electric car weighs on average 15 kilos. To mine the lithium for such a battery would not require up to 30,000 litres of brine water, as previously estimated, but instead merely 6,000 litres.
