At the Surface Water is collected through accumulation. There is more water underground than in rivers and lakes. What happens to water now?
PERMEABLE ROCK Water can easily pass through permeable rock. Permeable layers of rock and soil contain pores that are connected to each other. Sand and gravel are permeable materials. What could be an example of permeable material? What happens to water now?
WATER TABLE Based on this picture, write what you think the water table is. “the top of the saturated zone” WATER TABLE Saturated Zone Unsaturated Zone What happens to water now?
GROUNDWATER The saturated zone is the layer of permeable rock or soil that is totally filled. Contains an aquifer, which gives water to a well or a spring More about aquifers CLICK ME!!!
GROUNDWATER cont. We get our water from groundwater being pumped through a well Groundwater can trade places with surface water, becoming rivers and lakes.
IMPERMEABLE ROCK Based on what you know about groundwater, write a definition for impermeable rock “materials that water cannot pass through”
Label the picture with: –Groundwater –Permeable Rock –Surface water Draw the precipitation seeping into the ground Draw a well (make sure it reaches the water table) Run off recharge Water table Discharge area
