Water Conservation

Water is a renewable resource that continually moves through the environment in the water cycle:

If all of the world's water could fit in a 26 gallon jug, then... 3/4 of a gallon, or 3% of the water would be fresh water... 1/8 of a gallon, or 0.5% would be available fresh water... 1/2 of a teaspoon would be fresh water available for human use.
