Vision for ArrakisOff-worlders had spoken of planets where water fell from the skies, where great lakes and oceans covered the lands, and where plants grew dense andmagnificently tall. This was the vision they had for Arrakis, and in order to make it reality, they conserved water, hiding it in great reservoirs in their desert sietches, and even taking the water from the dead, and keeping track of it as though it were gold dust.
Relationship with Arrakis
Water PreservationTo survive the harsh and barren enviroment that was Arrakis, the Fremen tribes needed to create ways of conserving water, every drop of it. The primary way of doing so was with the use of stillsuits. These full body suits locked in moisture by absorbing sweat and other bodily expenditures through a membrenous layer. This was filtered, made drinkable, and then stored in catchpockets, which were on the suit. These could be drunk from using a tube by the neck of the suit.
