70% of the world’s surface is covered by water, 97.5% of that is salt water. Only 2.5% of that is fresh water, almost 68.7% is frozen in ice caps and glaciers. Only 1% of the total water resources on earth are available for human use. We are wasting & polluting what we have. Up to 30% of fresh water supplies are lost due to leakage in developed countries, and in some major cities, losses can run as high as 40% to 70%.
About 90% of sewage and 70% of industrial wastes in developing countries are discharged into water courses without treatment, often polluting the usable water supply.
