Few of us think about the value of water when we turn on the faucet. But everything we do requires water – freshwater. Our bodies, food and energy production, plants, animals and the entire web of life all depend on reliable freshwater. Approximately 97% of the water found on Earth is saltwater leaving only 3% of Earth’s water as freshwater making it a highly valuable but underappreciated resource.
