Did You Know?

Water covers about 71 percent of the Earth’s surface, and the oceans hold about 97 percent of that water.

Less than 3 percent of the water on Earth is drinkable. Of that fresh water, almost 69 percent is in icecaps and glaciers.

35 percent of the water that people use worldwide comes from aquifers.

44 percent of the world’s population lives within 93 miles (150 kilometers) of the sea.
