Once tapped it doesn't stop, unless rarely an earthquake might alter water path thru the rock. It has been drilled for since the 1920's but it's hardly mentioned since water control is power and unlimited water is not wanted. Search, primary water.
Since antiquity, the source of water generated deep within the Earth, clearly defying the conventional scientific hydrologic cycle explanation, has been a mystery..."
"One cubic kilometer of granite, under the right conditions, will yield one billion gallons of primary water." — Stephan Riess
"Primary water wells are not a new phenomenon. Stephan Riess was drilling wells all over California and in the Middle East as far back as the early 1930s. Pal has traveled to Africa numerous times, drilled six wells in Kenya and Tanzania, producing over 3,000 gallons per minute in an arid land with less than 10 inches of rainfall per year."

All those questions are answered on the primary water website. The Primary Water Institute is dedicated to teaching what is known about the volcanic origin of water

Personally, on my land, I take a multi-faceted approach. Everything from rainwater harvesting, greywater systems, drip irrigation and hugelkultur. Ponds are generally not allowed but I do have a few.

What if drought lasts from, say, March to October, with very high (>35 C) Summer temperatures? And even while there still is some moisture, will it be available for the roots of young plants / seedlings? And given the slope of the mound - and hence the increased exposure to Sun on the southern / western side - will that moisture be enough to compensate for the more intense transpiration?

The original Huegel bed model originated in Northern Europe and has a track record of working there. Wheaton Labs has had good success with ones that start out 6/7 feet tall, but they're also usually quite long.
