Summary Water is a valuable limited resource and is essential for life. What do we need to know and what can we do about preserving the world's water? This book explains the water cycle and how vital it is to look after our water resources, how important it is to keep our water clean and safe to drink. It covers different types of water pollution, both natural and man-made, and how this can be treated. Salinity is a big problem in Australia and most salt in the soil comes from rainwater, and over a period of time the salt builds up in the soil and eventually comes to the surface, thereby causing problems for the environment. We depend on water to live but our lives also have an impact on the water cycle, what we do will affect the water we have in the future
