After discovering from our USGS maps that there is more groundwater than freshwater on the surface, we wanted to figure out how groundwater actually gets underground. We have lots of competing ideas, many of which involve rain soaking into the ground (but how does it actually do that?) and traveling underground from a nearby pipe or body of water, to even some sort of rain catcher/bucket system. We developed some initial models and will come up with some investigations to see just how this happens! Check back soon to see our investigation ideas!
Initial Models: How Water Gets Underground

Where does our clean water come from and where does it go once we make it dirty?
