Water Facts: Did You Know...
Presently, 1.1 billion people lack access to
improved water supply and 2.4 billion to improved sanitation. Unless
action is stepped up, the number of people who lack access to improved
water supply could increase to 2.3 billion by 2025. World population
is approximately 6 billion.
- Of all water on earth, 97.5% is salt water,
and of the remaining 2.5% fresh water.
- Some 70% is frozen in the polar icecaps.
- The other 30% is mostly present as soil
moisture or lies in underground aquifers. In the end, less than 1%
of the world's fresh water (or about 0.007% of all water on earth)
is readily accessible for direct human uses. It is found in lakes,
rivers, reservoirs and in underground sources shallow enough to be
tapped at affordable cost (2).
- If all the earth's water fit in a gallon jug,
available fresh water would equal just over a tablespoon.
- A person can live about a month without food,
but only about a week without water (3).
- A person needs 4 to 5 gallons of water per day
to survive (4, 5).
- The average American individual uses 100 to
176 gallons of water at home each day (6, 7).
- The average African family uses about 5
gallons of water each day (7).
