A Resource In Crisis
The world's demand for fresh water is forever increasing while its useable supply diminishes, a situation the United Nations has deemed as a Water Crisis.
Consider these facts:
- Less than 1% of the Earth's water is available for human use.
- Nearly 900 million people worldwide lack access to clean water. Almost half of them are children.
- 4,100 children around the world die every day of water-related disease.
- By 2025, if present trends continue, we could be facing annual losses equivalent to the entire grain crops of India and the U.S. combined, according to the Institute of Water Resources.
