This collection of water sounds will focuse on different water surface and water actions, such as lapping, waves, streams, brooks and rivers in different states and conditions.  These are the most interesting sounds from my personal sound library in the category WATER.  This collection adds  precision and  textures if you are doing sound design for films, video games, television, theater, webtv or other sound requirements.

Here is a preview of the collection WATER via my Soundcloud account:
