1 Terry: Hmm. Astronomers have found there’s a lot more water on the moon than previously thought.
2 Steve: That’s good! We can grow grass for critters to eat, and there’ll be water for them to drink.
3 Terry: Oh, but the water is trapped inside microscopic cavities in volcanic and impact glasses.
4 Steve: Crikey! We’ll need to teach the animals to drink out of glasses!

This refers to news NASA announced on 27 October, 2020. The Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) found signatures of molecular water on the surface of the moon.
While they detected water, it's not clear how water can survive on the sunlit surface of the moon. Certainly not as pools of liquid. The most likely explanation put forward is that the water is trapped in microscopic amounts in cells inside glassy formations in the surface rocks.
