Water is a liquid which can be infinitely extracted from water tiles using an offshore pump. After being pumped out and distributed via pipes, water can be used to generate electricity by converting it to steam via boilers or heat exchangers. The specific heat of water is 200J / 1°C x unit. It takes 200 joules to heat one unit of water by one degree Celsius.

Water tiles can be removed completely by placing landfill over them. Raw fish can spawn in water tiles.
