Cool Water Facts 


Over 70% of the earth's surface
is covered with water.

Only 3% of the water on the earth
is fresh water; 97% is salt water
found in the oceans.

2/3 of the earth's fresh water is frozen in ice caps and glaciers.

Only 1% of all the earth's water is in a form that is usable by land plants, animals, and humans.

40 trillion gallons of water a day are carried in the atmosphere across the United States.

About 1,400 gallons of water are used to produce a meal of a quarter pound hamburger, order of fries, and a Pepsi.


People need about 2.5 quarts of water a day (from drinking and eating) for good health.

Water is the only substance that is found in nature in 3 forms: solid, liquid, and gas.
