Earth is also known as the “blue planet” because its surface is covered more by water than by land. To be exact, 70.9% of Earth’s surface is covered in water and water is the most common substance on the planet. However, only a small percentage of the water supply is freshwater and an even smaller percentage is available for human use.
Let’s take a look at the numbers. There is estimated to be about 326 million trillion gallons of water on the planet. About 97% of this is located in the oceans and is salty or otherwise undrinkable. Roughly 2% of the remaining freshwater is trapped in ice caps and glaciers. This leaves around 1% of Earth’s water supply for our uses – agricultural, industrial, residential and otherwise.
Though water is constantly changing forms and travelling around the globe, there has been the same amount of water on the planet for billions of years. The water you’re using to wash your car may have one time been part of a watering hole for prehistoric animals. Wow!
The planet holds so much water and that water has been around for so long, it may be hard to know where your water has been or where it’s coming from. That’s where we come in. We provide you with peace of mind in knowing that the spring water you’re drinking from your water cooler has been processed and bottled locally. It’s clean and safe and, with home delivery, it’s convenient.
We will deliver bottled water to your home or office so you never have to wonder where your next sip is coming from. We may be surrounded by water on this “blue planet” but only a small percentage is drinkable. Mountain Park is your reliable source for filtered drinking water.
