What the Expert Says:

Hello -
Landforms do influence the movement and retention of water. For example, mountains typically drain precipitation through streams to lower altitudes. Landforms of karst topography abound in caves and sinkholes into which surface water disappears into underground streams. Coastal plains typically have sandy soil which is very permeable to water. Water is stored between sand grains and can be obtained by drilling wells.

Hope this gives you the idea -
