Groundwater is water which is in the soil, below ground level. Rivers and streams, as well as rain feed these water basins. Groundwater will be released to the surface again, through springs, for example. This groundwater is stored in aquifers.

Drinking[change | change source]

People drink groundwater with water wells. They drill wells deep below the surface. Then, in the aquifer, the groundwater stored inside will be pumped up and used.
