  • Precipitation soaks into the ground and becomes ground water.

  • Surface water filters through soil and rock before reaching an aquifer.

  • Water in the spaces/openings surrounding soil particles (interstitial) is used for the biological needs of many plants and animals.

  • Aquifers are impounded or enclosed areas which hold the water underground.

  • Many aquifers are tapped by communities for drinking water.

  • Surface waters that become contaminated or polluted may seep into underground aquifers, deteriorating the quality of the water in the watershed.
