Where is the Drinkable Water?

Water graphic only 3% freshThe world may be surrounded by water, but how much of it is drinkable? The World Bank’s water program has created an infographic showing that fresh water is precious. 97% of the world’s water is too salty. Only 3% of the world’s water is fresh but mostly locked up in icebergs and glaciers. Such a small percentage of the world’s fresh water is available for use. It is imperative to use the remaining amount wisely, especially finding ways to make contaminated water safe to drink.
