MOVEMENT OF
GROUNDWATER
 
 What is Groundwater?
Groundwater is water that comes from the ground due to rain, snow, sleet,and hail that soaks into the ground.
 
Groundwater 
moves from areas of higher elevation toareas of lower elevation .
How Does Groundwater Move?
 
Due to precipitation, the water reaches the earth’s surface, some of it will flow along the surface
of the earth as runoff while the rest of it soaks into the ground called
 – 
 
RECHARGE.
 Water goes through the ground and stored in the
 Aquifer
(where water cannot infiltrate deeper)below. Due to pressure underground the water then slowly moves through spaces and cracksbetween the soil particles on its journey to lower elevation. The movement of water underground is called
Groundwater Flow.
Eventually after years of movement, the groundwater comes to a
DISCHARGE
area where it enters a lake or stream.
