    Fresh Water vs. Salt Water

    Less than 3% of water on the planet is fresh water. Only 0.0007% is available for consumption.

    Clean Water Access

    More than 1 billion people do not have access to clean water. Rising scarcity of freshwater continues to push sectors to treat wastewater for reuse.  

    According to the United Nations...

    • Water use has grown at over twice the rate of the world’s population increase in the last century.
    • Today, we use about 30% of the world’s total accessible renewal supply of water. 
    • In less than 10 years, that percentage could reach 70%. 
    • By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, with two thirds of the world’s population living in water-stressed regions.  

    Water Demand & Supply

     The International Food Policy Research Institute estimates there will be more than a 40% gap between water demand and supply over the next 15 years.
