Water Quality: The degree to which water meets standards for drinking, irrigation, and other uses. Water Distribution: The delivery of water from its source to a point of use. Water Cycle: The continuous movement of water from the land to the atmosphere and back to the land in the form of precipitation.

Approximately 78% of the Earth's surface is covered in water, but only 2.5% is fresh water and only 0.3% is accessible for human use. In most of the world, water is distributed through a network of pipes that are made up of concrete, steel, plastic, and copper. The Netherlands have the most advanced water distribution system in the world, with a network of over 150,000 kilometers of pipes!
