While the Earth is two-thirds water, less than three percent of that is freshwater. To further complicate the issue only a fraction of that water is available to be used to drink, for agriculture, power generation, manufacturing, or sanitation. Between this limited supply, a growing global population, and an increase in pollution assess to freshwater will be a defining issue for future generations.
