About this Flyer
You are reading this flyer right now, because you are probably a person who likes water and if you don't then this isn't for you. this flyer is here to tell you all about three different types of water, Fresh, Salt, and Brackish. it is a very interesting topic for water enthusiasts and other people who are just curious. Have the time of your life reading about the amazing topic of water.
Fresh water is always there. You don't even think twice about it. When you you are thirsty, you turn on the faucet and take a drink, when you are hot, you go for a swim in the pool, and when you need to take a shower, you just turn it on and hop in. There is nothing special about fresh water, is there? What if i told you that all that water you use everyday is only 3% of all the water on earth and that every living thing that walks on land requires freshwater to live, would that change the way you think of fresh water a little? I bet it would. Fresh water is the source of all life, without it the only thing that would live would be the fish in the sea.
Saltwater is the most abundant kind of water. It covers most of the earth in oceans over 25,000 feet deep and sustains life that you couldn't even imagine, but even though saltwater does support life, it does not support life on land. Salt water does to you exactly what you think it would do to you. With such a large amount of salt in the water, it cannot keep you hydrated and is not safe to drink.
is water that has more salinity than fresh water, but not as much as seawater. It may result from mixing of seawater with fresh water, as in estuaries, or it may occur in brackish fossil aquifers. Because brackish water is hostile to the growth of most terrestrial plant species, without appropriate management it is damaging to the environment.
