Jim Leftwich says: "Two Deejays for "Gator Country 101.9" warned that 'dihydrogen monoxide' was coming out of peoples' water faucets. Georgians panicked.

“Water is the driver of nature.”- Leonardo da Vinci

Without water, the other nutrient cycles would not exist in their present forms, and life on earth could not exist.

why is water important
Why is Water Important?
  • Water keeps us alive, moderates climate, sculpts the land, removes and dilutes wastes and pollutants, and moves continually through the hydrologic cycle.
  • Only about 0.02% of the earth’s water supply is available to us as liquid freshwater.
how do w e use water
How Do We Use Water?
  • 70% Irrigation: watering crops
  • 20% Industry: cooling down power plants
  • 10% Domestic and Municipal: drinking, sewage, bathwater, dishwater, & laundry
so do we use water responsibly
So Do We Use Water Responsibly?
  • We currently use more than half of the world’s reliable runoff of surface water and could be using 70-90% by 2025.
  • About 70% of the water we withdraw from rivers, lakes, and aquifers is not returned to these sources.
  • Why does this matter? There is only a limited amount of water available on Earth!

surface water
Surface Water
  • Comes from precipitation
  • Examples: streams, rivers, and lakes
  • Watershed flow: small streams  larger streams  rivers  sea
  • Tributary: river or stream flowing into a larger river or stream
freshwater streams and rivers from the mountains to the oceans
Freshwater Streams and Rivers:From the Mountains to the Oceans
  • Water flowing from mountains to the sea creates different aquatic conditions and habitats.

headwater stream
Headwater Stream
  • A narrow zone of cold, clear water that rushes over waterfalls and rapids.
  • Large amounts of oxygen are present.
  • Fish are also present. Ex. trout.
  • Slower-moving water
  • Less oxygen
  • Warmer temperatures
  • Lots of algae and cyanobacteria.
  • Aquifers: porous rock with water flowing through
  • Water Table: the level of earth’s land crust to which the aquifer is filled
  • Renewability: the circulation rate of groundwater is slow (300 to 4,600 years).
  • Why is knowing renewability rates important?
