Synopsis

Waterways-Watersheds-Groundwater

“Where does the water in the rivers come from?”  “Where does it go?”  “Who owns the water in rivers, reservoirs and aquifers?” As students investigate the science and geography of rivers, they will learn how people need and use rivers to sustain life.  Students will also learn how the human/environmental interactions affect our water supply in both positive and negative ways.   Finally, students will analyze water rights issues in some parts of the country.
