Water Resources

Do you ever wonder where our water comes from? What about people living in other cities around the world? Where does a person living in London, England or Cairo, Egypt get thier water? Every town and village in the world has a water source, otherwise the people living in that town or village would be unable to survive.

Getting Started:
In a journal, write down cities and/or countries that interest you. From that list, research the water sources for each place. Look at the water resources around the Truckee Meadows. Does it fascinate you how many different places water comes from? Share your disoveries with your parents, teachers and friends.

Click the image above and find out where we get our water in the Truckee Meadows.
