Though a broad topic, to be sure, there could definitely be questions on the exam related to water on all parts.

For instance, in Speaking Part 1, you could be asked about beach vacations or holidays near water.

In Part 2, you may be asked to describe a body of water (watch this video of a sample Part 2 answer about a river), or a place near water that you’ve been to.

Then, as Part 3 is an extension of the Part 2 topic, you could be asked about domestic/agricultural uses of water, pollution or water sports.
