Where’s the wa­ter?

The Western Star - - Kid Scoop -

97% of the world’s wa­ter is in the oceans and the re­main­ing 3% is fresh wa­ter. That 3% of fresh wa­ter di­vides into 77% con­tained in ice­caps and glaciers, 22% in ground­wa­ter aquifers (the source of our drink­ing wa­ter). And this leaves only 1% which make up the wa­ters in rivers, lakes and streams.
