List four advantages of water stored in ground .

@ Rupali : Your friend is right. I would like to elaborate answer given by her. 

The water below the surface of earth is termed as ground water. It has many advantages.

  • It is one of the source of fresh water.  It can be used for drinking and irrigation. 
  • As it is present below the ground, it is subjected to less contamination as compare to surface water by human and animal intervention.
  • It get recharged during rainy season and is available  even in dry seasons where as most of the surface water evaporates. It helps in growth of vegetation by providing moisture to the soil. 
  • It requires no or less treatment before use. It is likely to be devoid of any disease causing pathogens. Also, mosquitoes can not breed there. 

@ Fathima : Good work. Your posts are of great use to the users of the forum. Keep posting.
