The first municipal water filtration works opened in Paisley, Scotland in 1832.
Water is the only substance on earth which comes in three different forms; liquid, solid and a gas.
Somewhere between 70-75% of the earth’s surface is covered with water of this 97% is salt water found in oceans and seas. Only 1% of this is available for drinking water as the other 2% is currently frozen.
Much more fresh water is stored under the ground in aquifers than on the earth’s surface.
The earth is a closed system, similar to a terrarium, meaning that it rarely loses or gains extra matter. The same water that existed at the creation of the planet is still present today.
Approximately two thirds of the human body is water but some parts of the body contain more water than others e.g. 70% of your skin, 75% of the brain, 83% of our blood (the wettest part of the body), 2% of our tooth enamel (the driest part of the body).
At birth water accounts for approximately 80% of an infant’s body weight.
Drinking too much water too quickly can lead to water intoxication. This occurs when water dilutes the sodium level in the bloodstream and causes an imbalance of water in the brain. Water intoxication generally occurs during periods of intensive athletic performance.
75% of a chicken, 80% of a pineapple, 84% of a raw apple and 95% of a tomato and a jelly fish is water.
Typically, households consume at least 50% of their water by lawn watering, inside toilets use the most water with an average of 100lts (26.4 gallons) per person per day.
The average five-minute shower uses between 57-95lts (15-25 gallons) of water.
You can refill an average glass of water approximately 15,000 times for the same cost as a six-pack of soft drink.
A dairy cow must drink 15lts (4 gallons) of water to produce 3.5lts (0.9 gallon) of milk.
2½cm (1ins) of rainfall drops is 26,500lts (7,000 gallons) of water on a 18¼ by 164½m (60 by 180ft) piece of land.
A person should consume at least 2.4lts (2½ quarts) of water per day (from all sources e.g. water, food, etc.) to sustain good health.
A person can live more than a month without food but only approximately 7 days without water (depending on conditions).
The first water pipes in Australia were made of hollowed-out logs.
The world’s rainiest place is Mt. Wai’ale’ale, Kauai, Hawaii, during an average year there is only 15 dry days.
Pure water is solely hydrogen and oxygen atoms and has a neutral PH of 7, that is neither acidic nor basic.
Soft drinks, coffee, and tea while made up almost entirely of water but also contain caffeine. Caffeine can act as a mild diuretic, preventing water from travelling to necessary locations in the body.
Penguins can convert salt water into fresh water.
A snapping turtle can only swallow when its head is under water.
A rat can go longer without water than a camel.
Elephants can smell water up to 4.8kms (3 miles) away.
By the time a person feels thirsty, the body has lost over 1% of its total water amount.
The weight a person loses directly after intense physical activity is weight from water, not fat.
Water dissolves more substances than any other liquid. Wherever it travels, water carries chemicals, minerals, and nutrients with it.
Water expands about 9% as it freezes this makes ice less dense than water, which is why icebergs float on water.
There is no force known that can compress water.
Water has the highest surface tension of all liquids. Because water can form a ‘skin’ precipitation (rain) is possible.
Over 36,000 dams have been built to provide hydroelectric power, drinking water, irrigation, industrial supplies and control floods.
Over 1.2 billion people are at risk from drinking contaminated water.
If 4% of the world’s military expenditures (approximately $36,000,000,000) was saved each year, all of humanity would have clean drinking water and a sanitary way of disposing waste.
The Hydrologic cycle in one day uses more energy than the humankind has created throughout it’s entire history.
The largest freshwater lake in the world is Russia’s Lake Baikal it is 1,741 metres deep, 247.5 billion cubic metres (5,712 feet deep, 812 billion cubic feet). It supports 60% of species that occur nowhere else on earth, the highest proportion anywhere.

Australia’s longest river is the Darling-Murray flowing through N.S.W., Vic. & S.A. with a length of 3,717 km (2,310 miles) and is the 16th longest in the world. The Darling River and the Murray River both start inland and join at the border of N.S.W. and Vic. then flow across into S.A. into the Southern Ocean. The whole Darling-Murray river system, one of the largest in the world, drains all of New South Wales west of the Great Dividing Range, much of northern Victoria, south-western Queensland and parts of South Australia. Its meandering course is three times longer than the direct distance it traverses. For a picture of the Catchment Basin. Click Here
