Most of the world's wells rely on ground water, water produced by rain or other precipitation which seeps into the soil to form aquifers and water tables below the surface. As the major water supply, ground water has many problems. Ground water not only depends on the vagaries of weather, it can be contaminated by pollutants or salt water in coastal regions intruding when fresh is pumped out. In deserts, low rainfall and rapid evaporation prevent the formation of significant ground water, precluding agriculture or development.
Remarkably, there is an answer to all of these problems. This marvelous source of relatively untapped water is called Primary Water. Primary Water is new water formed by chemical reactions deep in the earth. This water, driven by massive pressure, works its way toward the surface through faults and fissures in normally impervious crystalline rock. While you may have to drill deeper for Primary Water, it is generally not subject to pollution or variations in rainfall, and usually sustains production for decades. Also, Primary Water sources are available in areas of the world where ground water is exhausted or does not exist in significant quantity.
Fresh Water Facts:
99% of all of the earth's fresh water is frozen in ice caps and glaciers.
The remaining 1% of the earth's fresh water is all that is readily available for personal agricultural or industrial use.
More than 300 million people live in countries with too little fresh water. By 2025, scientists predict that number will increase to 3 billion.
The human need for clean water is escalating because of rapid population and industrial growth. In addition, rising standards of living are increasing our total need for water.
In 1990, 26 countries were experiencing water scarcity with that number expected to grow to 65 by 2025. Currently, 10 countries in the Middle East and North Africa overdraw their national renewable water supply and make up the difference from ground water stocks.
