Compare surface water and groundwater?
Surface water refers to lakes, rivers and other bodies of water. It is usually filled with fish and other animals. Groundwater is the water that lies under the ground.
There are 2 main sources of water: groundwater and surface water. Groundwater lies under the surface of the land, where it travels through and fills openings in the rocks. Groundwater is pumped from these rocks to the earth's surface for use. Surface water is found in natural resources like rivers, lakes, and reservoirs.
