What are the main techniques we use to store fresh water for drinking?

    Fresh water can be stored in the natural places it would be even if we didn’t use it, like lakes, aquifers and glaciers, until we are ready to use it. Or it is stored in man made structures such as reservoirs and tanks/cisterns. In natural systems, when too much water is removed the ecosystem may be impacted, and the storage system may no longer work. Man made storage systems can be drained and filled more because they are often times not supporting a large ecosystem that has been dependent on the source for a long time. In tanks and cisterns, no animals or plants can reach the water, so habitat destruction is not an issue, but they are more used for communities or private residences.
