Isabelle’s blog about how people in England get their fresh water


We get a third of our tap water from underground and the rest we either get from reservoirs, lakes or from rivers. It gets to our taps by being transported by pipes, then it is taken to a water tower and next it’s pumped to the top of the water tower then gravity will transport it to our houses and taps to drink.


We use our water for lots of things, like drinking or having a bath or shower. Without water we would die in four days. Our tap water costs 0.1p per litre so we could have a year’s supply of drinking water for less than £1.00.
