Where Will You Find Water?

All underground water originates on the surface of the earth. The heat of the sun evaporates it; it forms clouds and falls as rain or snow; water accumulates in streams, ponds, oceans and it seeps into the ground. Just how much water is there underground? Geologists have determined that there is 30 times as much ground water as there is in all the streams, lakes and rivers in the world!

In the ground, water is found in 3 general types of formations known as an aquifer.
These are:
           Layers of sand
           Layers of gravel
           Porous rock or a crack in rock
