Water displacement is simply when something (e.g. a block) is put into water, and the water level rises. This is because the block is taking up space, and the water has to move somewhere, and the only place to go is up.

Displacement of water refers to placing an object into a sample of water, which will cause the water level to rise. The rise in water level is the displacement.
