In general people take for granted their availability of water especially in America. Groundwater work is done on a very regular basis to ensure water quality stays up to a certain standard for consumption. Water makes up 70% of the Earth’s surface, however only 1/10,000 of that water is readily available fresh drinking water that sits on the surface. The other large portion of fresh water is only available deep underground. This makes providing people with fresh drinking water a constant struggle not only for us here in America but everywhere in the World.
