SOURCES OF WATER
Water is a very valuable resource for all the living beings. We all know that the water reaches our home through taps. Similarly there are different sources through which we can obtain water and the sources are seas, oceans, rivers, lakes, ponds, wells, natural springs, waterfalls, etc.
As we all know water is needed for all the activities including agricultural, industrial, household, recreational and environmental activities.
Sources like rivers, ponds and wells are used in agriculature for irrigation. These sources help the farmer to grow crops and earn his livelyhood. Rivers and lakes are also used economically as they help in the development of the country's natural beauty. We have several lakes and rivers in our country which are rich in many minerals and salts. Rivers and lakes are the widely chosen place by travellers to rest.
Sea and ocean are another source which not only provides us with salt but also helps us in transportion, trading, fishing and establishing friendly relation with the neighbouring countries and continents. The beach is the best place to relax and think for solutions to your toughest problems as you tend to find peace.
These sources have also been helping the scientists in many scientific discoveries and also for generating electricity.
Thus, we can conclude by saying that all the different sources of water play an important or vital role in our life in one or the other.
