Here is one nice from Chinese mythology, issued by China in 2019:

Yu the Great Taming the Waters - Yu the Great was a legendary ruler in ancient China who was famed for his introduction of flood control. He personally travelled the entire country with a select group of aides to study geography, measure elevation, and mark down river channels. He worked alongside the common people to dredge the riverbeds, which opened up river courses and allowed floodwaters to drain into the ocean. He also built a system of canals so the waters could irrigate the farmers' fields.

These are, comets, the only supplier on Earth.








This are the only true transportation, anything else is just down hill.




Now you can show the smaller transport containers and some uses such as living in:

With many people going to get a drink of water you just turn on the tap where you live.

But with others they have to walk miles to obtain it from a well, river or communal distribution centre.

Great topic. I really came to appreciate the availability of clean potable water during my time in Bangladesh where large portions of the population dealt with arsenic laced water from hand pumps many of which were installed with USAID funds to "help". I could afford the luxury of bottled water and beer as ways to avoid said water whereas most could not. Never took it for granted again. Same thing for the locals in Iraq due to little or no treatment during the war. During my time in Afghanistan I was in many small villages where one of their most important leaders would always be the person in charge of drinking water supply from incredible hand dug underground systems. They would maintain these by hand by descending into the depths on ladders constructed from branches and would use bags made from cow stomachs to hoist out the debris that collected.

There was also a problem in supplying water to British households years ago with the use of lead piping.

Lead pipes to supply water are being replaced due to health hazards, with either copper or plastic piping.

Info via United utilities :
In the past, lead was widely used for everything from plumbing to electronics.

It is now known that over time, exposure to lead can affect health, with the greatest risk being to children under six and to pregnant women.

As a result, the Government has banned the use of lead in many products, and it has not been used for water pipes since 1970. The Government also advises that we should minimise our exposure to lead from all sources, including drinking water.

Are you sure it's a barrel of Swiss water and not French brandy (Cognac) ?

Here is the story about the dog and the barrel.

Without water there is no life as we know It.

In the desert water can be more precious than gold.

Water wheels.
~~~~~~~~~~

One of the many uses of water is to drive a wheel in order to perform a specific function.

In the case of the great Laxey wheel it was to pump water out of a lead mine on the Isle of Man.




https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laxey_Wheel

Water driven wheels have also been used to drive other types of machinery for various uses.

Here are some other versions..........

This is a great topic. Water is almost invisible for many of us, but is a huge issue if you are aware of its importance, and how people had managed its flow throughout the history.
