Video: Where does your drinking water come from? Follow water from start to tap.


In this video, Dewy the water drop explains how water from the environment makes its way into our homes to become our drinking water. You will learn about the water cycle, watersheds, groundwater, surface water, and the ways that drinking water can be supplied to our homes, including private residential wells and public water supplies. By the end of the video, we hope you have a better understanding of where drinking water comes from!
