We already know that water covers about three- quarters of the Earth’s surface, and It is essential to life (plants, animals, humans) Water is a renewable resource- that is after it has been used it returns to the water cycle and in time it will be used again. The total abundance of water on Earth might not seem to be a problem. But people rely heavily on fresh water and its amount is limited ( 3.5%) in comparison to the rising world population and increasing demand. Making water available where and when it is needed is a problem.
