Factors that Influence Groundwater Movement

4. Factors that Influence Groundwater Movement

The movement of groundwater underneath us is influenced by several factors. In this video lesson, you will learn what these factors are and how they affect how and where groundwater moves.

Water Conservation: How Water Management Can Lead to Sustainable Use

5. Water Conservation: How Water Management Can Lead to Sustainable Use

In this video lesson you will learn about the importance of water conservation. You will also learn about the two ways freshwater is used, and how proper water use can lead to sustainability in agriculture, homes, and manufacturing.
