Approximately 97 percent of the world’s water is salty or otherwise undrinkable. Another two percent is locked up in glaciers and ice caps. That leaves just one percent of fresh water for our agriculture, residential, manufacturing, community and personal uses.
Each day 280 cubic miles of water evaporates or transpires into the atmosphere. Once it evaporates, a water molecule spends around 10 days in the air.
