Water in a river drainage system To accompany Lesson 3.1 of the Water resources teacher guide and lesson plans: Balancing priorities: agriculture and the environment – The Murray-Darling Basin © Commonwealth of Australia, 2011
How does water flow in this system? US Department of Agriculture © Commonwealth of Australia, 2011
Water in a river drainage system: input, transfer, storage and outputs inputs transfer storage outputs © Commonwealth of Australia, 2011
Inputs US Department of Agriculture © Commonwealth of Australia, 2011 Precipitation (rain, hail or snow) enters the river drainage basin. This precipitation is the input of water into the system (inflows).
Transfer: water movement through the basin US Department of Agriculture © Commonwealth of Australia, 2011 Some of the precipitation flows across the ground (surface run-off) into rivers and adds to streamflow. Surface run-off also flows into lakes, dams and reservoirs. Some of the water soaks into the ground, entering gaps between soil particles (infiltration). Some of the water that has soaked underground travels close to the land surface and soon emerges into streambeds. Gravity causes the remaining water to seep deep underground through soil and rock via the process of percolation.
Transfer and storage: below ground flows US Department of Agriculture © Commonwealth of Australia, 2011 The water that infiltrates the soil and seeps deeper below the surface eventually meets the water table, which is the layer where the soil is saturated. In this saturated layer, the small cracks and spaces between the rock particles are filled with water. This is what we call groundwater. Groundwater that seeps deep underground forms huge natural underground water storage areas called aquifers, where the water saturates porous rock. Typically, water moves very slowly in an aquifer and can take thousands or even millions of years to move back into the river drainage system.
Storage: benefits of groundwater The slow trickle of groundwater into streams and wetlands provides essential water during periods of low rainfall. Groundwater stores provide an alternative source of water to water captured from surface water run-off. Groundwater is brought to the surface by drilling underground into the saturated zone. © Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, 2011
Output US Department of Agriculture © Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, 2011 The final release of water out of the river drainage system is the output (outflows). Often water flows through a river drainage system and out to sea. Large amounts of water will also re-enter the atmosphere as water vapour.
Output: evaporation and evapotranspiration Evaporation of liquid water into a gas (water vapour) occurs from water stored in oceans, lakes, dams, wetlands and river channels. Water also evaporates from the soil surface. Plants draws up water from soils through their roots. The water vapour exits the plants via their leaves (transpiration). The combined loss of water to the atmosphere through evaporation and transpiration is called evapotranspiration. © Commonwealth of Australia, 2011
HYDROSPHERE By the end of the lesson you will be able to: 1.Describe the global hydrological cycle 2.Categorise the elements of the movement of water within.

Water Cycle ( Also known as the hydrologic cycle) The continuous process by which water moves from Earth’s surface to the atmosphere and back.
Drainage Basin. A drainage basin is the name given to the area of land which is drained by a river. The drainage basin acts as a funnel by collecting.
