But how does it get to our homes?Water is one of the most amazing resources that we use in abundance and have come to rely on heavily. It is used in all sorts of household chores, leisure activities and in work and industry. From the pitter-patter of raindrops to the whoosh of water from the shower, we follow the journey from the source to the resource. We begin by looking at what water is and where it comes from, and the all-important water cycle. We then look at how water is stored and treated ready to be pumped around the country and into our homes. Finally we consider the environmental impact of our water use and what we can do to use less water in our daily lives. We also look at how people live in places that do not have a reliable water supply and methods that can be used to clean water that is in short supply.
