World Water Day Fact

March 22 is World Water Day. With two thirds of the earth under water, you might not think we’d need a day to remind us that millions of people don’t have anywhere near enough of it.

On the 22nd, we’ll publish a World Water Day page with stories, video, and other features about the state of water needs. Until then, each day this week, we’re posting one fact about water that you might not be aware of.

Today’s fact: In the U.S., nearly 100% of people have multiple taps and flush toilets inside their homes. In Sub-Saharan Africa, less than 30% have running water and sanitation available.
