More water facts, courtesy of the American Water Works Association...
• Of all the water in the world, 97 percent is in the oceans and about 1.7 percent
is locked up in ice and snow. Icecaps and glaciers hold the majority of the Earth’s
freshwater - about 68.7 percent.
• Your local water supplier must comply with regulations set forth by the Safe Water
Drinking Act. This requires your utility to monitor and treat for almost 100
different parameters in the water delivered to your tap. As a result, drinking
water is the most regulated and controlled substance you can ingest-more than
any food, drug, or beverage.
