Fact of the Day: Underground Water

While most people think that the vast majority of fresh water is in our lakes and rivers, the amount of all of them is actually quite small compared to the water located underground.

  5. Yeah it's pretty amazing the size and amount of underground water sources. I think I read once that 1/3 of Canadians rely on ground water.

    Underground water is plentiful...........surely your readers know of deep wells in desert areas.....eg: Australia, Northern Africa etc etc??????????
    Artesian water is the lifeline of the outback properties (ranches) here in Australia.

  7. Unfortunately many of our critical underground aquifers ~ I'm thinking in particular of the Ogallala Aquifer ~ are being drawn down so much. I really worry about water and our future. btw ~ I'm reading "The Curse of the Narrows" by Laura M. MacDonald. It's about the Halifax Explosion that happened on December 6, 1917 ~ the biggest manmade explosion prior to Hiroshima. The author was recounting a brief history of Halifax, and I was surprised to learn that a number of the city's streets were laid out by Prince Edward (Edward VII) whom you wrote about a day or so ago.
