All About Water...

About 55%-65% of the human body is water by weight. Cells,tissues, and organs need water to function properly. Water helps with digestion,absoption and transportation of nutirents. It also helps with the elimination of waste through the kidneys, colon, and lungs. Water also distributes heat throughout the body and allows heat to be released through the skin through evaporation also known as sweating. Lastly water lubricates joints and cushions body tissues. REMEMBER! The body can only last a few days without water.
There are two main sources of water: surface water and groundwater. Surface Water is found in lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. Groundwater lies under the surface of the land, where it travels through and fills openings in the rocks. The rocks that store and transmit groundwater are called aquifers. Groundwater must be pumped from an aquifer to the earth's surface for use.
