Different Water Types

By Scott Mrozek

Fresh Water

Fresh water is naturally occuring water from icebergs, ponds, rivers, and more. Fresh water is known for having very low amounts of salt. A major source of fresh water is from precipitation like rain or snow. Most fresh water ponds and rivers are not safe to drink without purification of the water.

Brackish Water

Brackish water, also known as Briny water, contains some salt but not as much as ocean water. Brackish Water can normally be found where oceans and rivers meet. Brackish water is hostile to most plant species, without any help it is damaging to our enviorment.

Salt Water

Salt water, also known as seawater, contains the most salt out of the three. Salt water is more dense than fresh water. Also the more salt that the water contains the longer it takes to freeze.
