Water is examined as a natural wonder and as the substance that sustains life. Also studied is the technology it supports and which supports it. Included: irrigation systems; fountains; and the bottled-water industry.
Water is one of the most treasured natural resources on Earth. Despite its abundance, only a portion of all of the planet’s water can be consumed by humans, leaving nearly a half a billion people without access to clean drinking water. Water’s unique chemical makeup gives it incredible features that make life on Earth as it is.
