Just Imagine

Out of the total volume of water on the earth, freshwater makes about 2.5% of the total volume.

70% of the 2.5% is in the form of ice (glaciers)  and permanent snow cover (don’t know how permanent though with global warming); almost 30% of the 2.5% is groundwater and only 0.3% is easily accessible on the earth’s surface (lakes, rivers, streams and ponds).

The rest of the water, slightly more than 97% is saltwater (oceans).
