|Groundwater: Our Hidden Treasure|
The materials presented here highlight the fact that Earth's supply of water is finite and is constantly recycled. We depend on water for drinking, washing, recreation, agriculture and industry. It controls the world's weather and sustains the natural systems above and below the earth's surface. Users can examine an illustration that shows the role played by groundwater in the hydrologic cycle and read question-and-answer discussions about the origins of water, our groundwater supply, and threats to that supply. A case study about South Australia shows how groundwater supplies are used and managed in a region where they are almost the only source of water. Links to other related topics are also provided.
