The Water Screw

Is water a reason we’ve evolved so much? Water consists of oxygen and hydrogen and is an essential to life. Water is what keeps our crops growing, which also keeps us alive. But has it affected our past and present. It's in many ways, like why we drink water instead of drinking other drinks, like Gatorade, or how in the past and present we have tried to evolve our way of how to transport water, and how we used to believe in gods and goddesses about water. Water has impacted how we exercise and what we use to exercise.

The Archimedean Screw was and still is being used to bring water upwards from a lower elevation. The Greeks had used this invention wisely, like when the mines there flooded, the Grecians, and other ancient civilizations, used his invention to take water out of the mine to work. In the present, we use the water screw at dams and reservoirs to control the flow of the water, like the one at Meriden Dam, which controls how the dam flows. One source says,” I would bring in a larger scale of water and the screw to conduct more life-involved experiments of the water screw.” (My Water Screw Conclusion) This quote shows us that we could advance our knowledge about water and its movements using the water screw. Wikipedia states,” The principle is also found in pescalators, which are Archimedes screws designed to lift fish safely from ponds and transport them to another location. This technology is used primarily at fish hatcheries, where it's desirable to minimize the physical handling of fish.”(Wikipedia, Archimedes Screw) This cite explains how we are using to help the environment, which then helps with food production. To summarize, Our past and present have been affected by a creation involving
