2. Groundwater, State Water Project & Surface Water
1% fresh water for people, plants and animals.
75 -80% of our water is recycled through agriculture and plants.
Permeable
Some surfaces allow water to soak into the ground and some do not. These are called permeable and impermeable surfaces.
70% of 1% fresh water is used for agriculture
Increased amount of impermeable surfaces means less water soaking into underground aquifers and can raise the ambient air temperature.
The Aqueduct is 702 miles of open canals and pipeline.
Water that leaves our house goes to the wastewater treatment plant and is cleaned and recycled.
Lytle Creek
70% of household water is used outside rather than inside.
The typical depth of groundwater is approximately 400 to 500 feet in the Inland Empire.

Water's Worth It
Thank You!

5-ESS2-2. Describe and graph the amounts and percentages of water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.
Water that runs into the storm drain is called runoff and is not filtered. This sends pollutants into the waterways and ocean.
