IS FOUND IN ICE CAPS AND GLACIERS mOST OF EARTH'S WATER IS
FOUND IN OCEAN'S BUT IS TOO SALTY 1. INTAKE 2. chemical addition 3. SEDIMENTATION 4. COAGULATION AND FLOCCULATION 5. fILTRATION 6. dISTRIBUTION wATERSHEDS bASIN-LIKE PIECE OF LAND THAT
INCLUDE HILLS, MOUNTAINS aND THEN DESCEND INTO LOWER STREAMS aFTER RAIN AND SNOW FALLS CREATING
MORE WATER THE WATER IS THEN DISTRIBUTED

TEMPERATURE BELOW zero the
snow starts piling up and
FORMING WHAT IS CALLED A GLACIER
When the temperatures
get warmer the glacIER
slowly start to melt It Is belIEVED BY SCIENTISTS
THAT THE CAUSE OF MELTING GLACIERS
IS GLOBAL WARMING OR THE GREEN HOUSE
