Although water covers 75 percent of the world’s surface, fresh water is an increasingly valuable resource. Freshwater resources constitute a small fraction of available water resources in the world, and are mostly confined to the water-bearing strata, surface water and the atmosphere. It is estimated that 1 billion people has a limited access to clean fresh water and 80 percent of diseases are water borne.
