What are three water types?
Water can occur in three states: solid (ice), liquid or gas (vapor).
What are the sources of water in villages?
Water supply to such rural communities can be sourced from rainwater, groundwater or spring/surface water. Through simple rainwater harvesting techniques, household as well as community needs for water in arid and semi-arid regions, where no other water sources are available or feasible, can be met.
What is not a source of water?
Potable water means drinking water. Well, river and lake contain drinking water as these all contain either rainwater and groundwater which is suitable for drinking. The sea which contains salty water that is not suitable for drinking is not a source of potable water.
What is the main source of water on Earth?
Oceans, which are the largest source of surface water, comprise approximately 97 percent of the Earth’s surface water.
What is the most important source of water on Earth?
Groundwater, which is in aquifers below the surface of the Earth, is one of the Nation’s most important natural resources. Groundwater is the source of about 33 percent of the water that county and city water departments supply to households and businesses (public supply).
