The Flint Michigan Crisis was a large problem that left people with no drinkable / usable water. The cause of this problem was that lead that had accumulated on the interior surface of the pipes caused them to become lead contamination. An EPA reform could help to prevent more problems like this to occur.
The biosphere is a life-supporting global ecosystem, where each living things depends on each other and the environment. The ecosystem includes all living organisms and the abiotic or nonliving environment on which they depend for their energy and the nutrients they need to live. Water is absorbed and used as nutrients for the plants such as trees and can transpire many thousands of gallons during the growing season
The hydrosphere is the liquid water component of the Earth. It includes the oceans, seas, lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. The hydrosphere covers about 70% of the surface of earth. All water that has passed through the Bio and Lithosphere returns here from runoff and other methods
The lithosphere is the rigid, rocky outer layer of the Earth, consisting of the crust and the solid outermost layer of the upper mantle. It extends to a depth of about 60 mi. It is broken into about a dozen separate, rigid blocks, or plates the surface is often used as a plane for rain water to run down. water can be absorbed in this layer giving energy to plants and living things around it
This is what we often refer to as the starting point of the hydrologic cycle. When water evaporates it sits on the top of the troposphere, and can move deping on certain wind conditions, For example jet stream and global winds can carry clouds to different locations. When a lot of water is gathered it is then dropped to the lithosphere
