What happens to water that soaks into the ground?
February 23, 2011 10:09PM
Water that soaks/sinks into the ground continues to seep down until it seeps to a depth of about 100 metres. Then, it soaks further down and:
Hits the water table- the level beneath which porous rocks are saturated water.
Becomes a part of the aquifer- an area of porous rock with a water system flowing through it, (kind of like a river or stream of groundwater)
