    Groundwater is carried in underground streams of water. Our wells go down to bring up groundwater. An aquifer is water that is contained under ground.

    Ways to conserve soil:
    Rotate crops so that the minerals are replenished
    Don't plow to prevent the wind from blowing it away.

    Way to preserve forests:
    Plant trees to replace trees that have been cut down.

    Water solutions:
    Don't plant lawns and crops in dry areas.
    Make sure that gas lines don't leak.
    Limit business and housing developments in dry areas.

    Your ideas are excellent!

    You're very welcome, Mohammad.

    Use off switch and change a light bulb are both ways to conserve energy. Electricity is often produced by fossil fuels.
