Of all the water that exists on this planeti.e. 3.4 x 10^7 MAF(Million Acre Feet), less than 3 percent is fresh; some 75 percent of this sweet water is locked up in ice caps and glaciers located in the polar areas far awy from the human habitation, while 24 percent is contained in the ground water acquifires, which leaves only 1 percent which is available in the forms of lakes and river flows, thus there is no direct access to 99 percent of fresh water!
So we are bound to save water so that these people can have fresh water and better health like we can afford!
