"This narrative nonfiction book explores the water system as it affects cities. The narrative tracks our water from its source, moving through pipes and treatment facilities into our taps and fire hydrants, our pools and toilets, then out through storm and sewer systems. It takes a fun, engaged approach that emphasizes the experience of kids and how they relate to water. The underlying message is one of conservation and the importance of equitable access to this vital resource."-- Provided by publisher.
