How Does the Earth Purify the Water - The Answer May
Surprise You

even some filtered, bottled H20.

When investigating the answer to the question "How does the earth purify the
water?", I like to imagine that the layers of the earth are really just giant filters that
help to eliminate contaminants in water as it makes its way down through the rocks,
sand and gravel. This is not a quick process. In fact, you might go crazy sitting there
waiting for it to turn into pure, underground spring water. In a given one square foot
area, H20 passes through layers of dirt, sand and gravel at a rate of 0.1 gallon a
minute. That's 0.4 liters a minute. By the time you had enough water to quench your
thirst, you might be old and gray.

Natural springs found deep below the surface of the earth has naturally filtered out
99.9 percent of contaminants that could harm a person's health if ingested. As the
water moves through the various porous layers of the earth, foreign particles are
trapped in the sediment while it passes freely, but slowly, down to deeper layers.
Even microorganisms that can cause disease and death in ingested by humans or
animals are filtered out of the water through this natural process.

How does the earth purify water in other ways?

Another way in which the earth naturally purifies is through the water cycle. You
probably learned about this in elementary school. The cycle starts with the large
bodies of waters such as oceans and seas. Great volumes evaporate off the surface
of these bodies of water and become gas and drift up into the earth's atmosphere.
Most particles are not able to evaporate and stay behind. The water then
reconstitutes as a liquid and falls to the earth as rain or snow. Of course pollution in
the air and water has devastated this process.

It's an interesting question. How does
the earth purify water? Seeing as
though natural spring water
originating hundreds, sometimes
thousands of feet below the earth's
surface is the cleanest, healthiest and
most delicious H20 ever to be tasted,
it might be a good idea to understand
just how that happens. How can
water that comes from the dirty
ground be purer and safer than what
comes from my kitchen faucet?
Perhaps the notion appears counter
intuitive. But it is true. The water that
has filtered through many layers of
sediment and gravel is purer than
