China’s demand for groundwater is growing along with its economic development. Such problems as continued declining of water table due to groundwater overexploitation, ground subsidence and water quality deterioration as well as other environmental issues have become increasingly prominent. Therefore, China has carried out a series of groundwater management measures in the overexploitation zones. However, management measures and experience cannot be evaluated and summarized systematically as a management evaluation system has not been put in place in a timely manner. Against this background, this paper aims to establish a relatively scientific and rational groundwater overexploitation management and evaluation system by combining with the generally applicable management experience in groundwater overexploitation zones oriented in management results, control measures, monitoring system and regional characteristics. The system is also applied to evaluate two typical overexploitation zones of Hebei Province and Jiangsu Province from 2012 to 2014 with their final scores of 70 and 86, respectively. The evaluation results are analyzed to prove the rationality of the system as a basis for reference to fully promote the management of groundwater overexploitation zones.
