Water We Fighting For?is the twenty-ninth episode of The Life and Times of Juniper Lee and the third episode of season three.
The magical water from Orchid Bay is disappearing at an alarming rate when a water company is draining it. Juniper heads to Aqualandia to seek out its king to fix the problem before Orchid Bay is capsized.
Two small monsters are fighting over their water-spots and June intervenes to hold off a fight between them, helping one of them find a new water-spot, but the monster explains that his water-spot really was there. Later, when June is at the beach with her family and friends when her bracelet goes off alerting her of the immediate problem. A few normal humans have decided drain the Orchid Bay water for their bottled water company. Because they are draining magical water though, the entire city might capsize the more they remove it. Because they have a permit and June can't do anything about them, she decides to go to Aqualandia, where the water is removed from, to request the help of their king.
While June submerges into the magical water of Orchid Bay in search of Aqualandia, Ray Ray thinks up extinct "Burping Snails" to employ the help of Ophelia who gets an activist campaign going. June meanwhile that sees that the Aqualandians have no idea what's going on and after explaining king Agatorius the threat, realizes that he is just stalling. Because all she needs to get the water back is the king's trident, June tries to take matters back into her own hands, but the king stops her and reveals that he would prefer for Orchid Bay to capsize because that would mean Aqualandia gets to be on top and see daylight reasoning this decision with complaints about how much he dislikes life in Aqualandia. He sicks an squid-crab monster on June to distract her and goes to prepare for the reversal of the two lands. The peace campaign for the burping snails is going great but the water is still being drained too fast and the cities begin to rotate. The king and his consorts are waiting around all while June fights the monster and it's drill head and escapes, managing to snatch the trident from the king waiting and stop the water from flowing out completely, reversing the flowing and putting everything back into order.
The king and his consorts are still waiting for Orchid Bay to capsize, feet attached to bricks and all.
