Water supply refers to the process of providing water to a community or area. This can include the collection, treatment, and distribution of water for drinking, irrigation, and industrial use. The water can be sourced from surface water (such as lakes and rivers) or groundwater (such as wells and aquifers).
The goal of a water supply system is to provide a clean and reliable supply of water to meet the needs of the community it serves.
