Transcript of Water!

Water came to Earth from comets/meteors

Showers: 16.8%
Clothes Washers: 21.7%
Toilets: 26.7%
Leaks: 13.7%
Faucets: 15.7%
Other Domestic Uses: 5.3%
The Different Types of Water
Tap water
is water that comes out of faucets and has been treated.
Distilled water
is any kind of water that has been vaporized and collected, leaving behind the mineral residues that come with it.
Reverse osmosis water
is water that has been forced through membranes that remove large amounts of minerals.
Deionized water
is water that has had minerals and ionized impurities but not removed of bacteria.

Mineral Rich H20
Water may have came from sources of meteorites and comets but we still aren't completely sure of it's true origin.
Water purification
Water purification is the process of removing chemicals, gases, contaminants and solids contaminated water. The goal of this process is to produce water fit for purposes.
Rivers and Drainage
Canada's water drains into the Pacific Ocean, Hudson Bay, the Arctic Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and also the Gulf of Mexico. Five drainage basins carry this water to its destination. A
drainage basin
is the area drained by a river and its tributaries. A area that is higher then the drainage basin is called a
The amount of water that flows through a drainage basin is called the
discharge rate
Water: The Most Basic Resource

Percentage Breakdown of
Daily Water Use
Well water
comes from a hole drilled
in the ground that taps into water sources. A pump then brings it to the surface
Natural spring water
flows up from a natural spring and is bottled at the source.
Artesian or spring waters
come from a natural source an are processed and purified.
Mineral water
could be spring water or artesian water. It comes from an underground source and contains at least 250 parts per million of dissolved solid.
Where Did Earth's Water
Come From?
Where is the Resource found in?
Water in Canada is found as rivers, lakes, snow
, glaciers, and mainly found in oceans. 99%
of all fresh water is found in glaciers, ice fields, or under ground.
Issues about Water

Pollution is one of the issues that that is harmful. The pollution of the water can cause sickness and even death. One major incident in Walkerton, Ontario in 2000 killed 7 people and made 2000 ill. We have 2 major problems in getting the chemicals out of the water. Some chemicals seep in through underground sources and we don't have the technology to remove chemicals from the water!
Issues about water
Wetland are so important to us, wetlands
provide us with source of groundwater and a storage area for flood water. Some wetlands even provide sewage treatment. Wetlands are disappearing fast and as they disappear ground water disappears and also habitats too.

In this activity you will drink 3 cups of water which contains bottled water, tap water, and filtered water. You will have to determine which cup has which water.
Interactive Activity

Water: is a colorless transparent, odourless, tasteless liquid that form seas, lakes, rivers, other bodies of water, and we use it everyday!

Topics: types of water
purification process
issues about water

Issues on water
The issues for water are pollution. There are three main types of pollution. Physical pollution, biological contamination and chemical.
Physical pollution
Physical pollution is basically us throwing garbage, plastic, pop cans, paper litter and old tires. This type of pollution is the least harmful.
Biological Contamination
Biological Contamination basically refers to bacterias and viruses that enter lakes and rivers from many sources. The largest contamination comes from sewages of cities and towns. Most of the sewages are treated but some of them aren't treated. About 20% of canadian cities put their sewages into lakes and rivers without treatment.
Chemical pollution
Issues on water
This form of pollution is the most dangerous form of water pollution This pollution is colourless, tastelkess, and odourless. Basically it is silent but deadly as the saying goes. Unfortunately, the water bodies containing these chemicals are often sources of water for many people.
Canada has taken steps to solve water shortages by diverting water from one drainage basin from another. These diversions are causing enviromental damage, negative inpact on Aboriginal people , and more.
Facts About Water
2 important/ dangerous chemical are pesticides and herbicides
Interactive activity
Future Solutions
71% of Earth is salt water and 3% of all water is fresh water.
Most of Canada's water is underground.
The USA uses the most amount of water and Ethiopia uses the least amount
Its not easy to distinguish purifed water from
bottled water and tap water, though you might have guessed which was which and got it right, you might not get it right the next time because it is actually really hard to tell the difference because water usually tastes the same but just because water tastes the same, it doesn't mean that we shouldn't care if our water is purified or not. In Canada we are lucky to have our water purified and clean because in many other countries clean water would be a dream to have.
On average Canadians use 330L/ day
On average everyone on Canada uses 180
About 783 million people don't have clean water
20% of Canada's fresh water is in lakes and wetlands.
Water can affect the temperature depending on if it is cool or warm and will change the air currents warmth
Water on Iceburgs is the cleanest of all water
Everything requires water to live

Water Prices
As Canadians we have so much water that our water is very cheap compared to Germany
Canadian Arctic
in the Canadian Arctic the tempatures are rising and this is causing weather that had never occured there before, this is a large worry of Aboriginal people as their way of living changes, this doesnt only affect the Aboriginal people, it also affects the world, with ice melting the sea levels are rising and land once dry will be wet
Canada's Arctic
the Canadian arctic holds 40%
of all of Canada's land
Canada's arctic is home to more than a 100,000 people
Canadian arctic
the Canadian Arctic is home to hundreds of species like the polar bears, foxes, snowy owls, and much more
