Weekly Water Facts

Fact #1 

Nearly 97% of the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable. Another 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just 1% for all of humanity’s needs — all its agricultural, residential, manufacturing, community, and personal needs

  Fact #2

Water is part of a deeply interconnected system. What we pour on the ground ends up in our water, and what we spew into the sky ends up in our water.

Fact #3 

American residents use about 100 gallons of water per day.  
Residential Europeans use about 50 gallons of water per day.
Residents of sub-Saharan Africa use only 2-5 gallons of water per day.
