Our focus on the environment

A bit of information on water resources

 

The general water resources are, first of all, our planet’s open bodies of water. They are enormous: they occupy as much as 72% of the total surface of the Earth. Simple mathematics shows that the remaining part is covered by land (approximately 28%).

The available statistics show that out of 100% of water on the Earth, only 2,5% is fresh water, i.e. drinking water. The vast majority – 97.5% – is seawater, and the lion’s share of it comes from oceans.

Let’s now discuss the resource we use on daily basis. Fresh water, for that is what we mean, can be divided into surface and atmospheric water, glaciers, and ground water. The proportions, however, may be breathtaking. As much as 68.7% are frozen blocks of ice! Approximately 30.1% is water inside the Earth, and only 0.4% is found in rivers, lakes or ponds. We’ll come back to this in a while.

Since we already know how to classify fresh water, let’s try to characterize surface and atmospheric water. The largest share belongs to lakes: as much as 64.5%. The share of water in soils, swamps and marshes and atmospheric water (such as rain) is 12.2%, 8.5% and 9.5% respectively. Another surprise can be that rivers – of which there seem to be so many – only constitute 1.6% of the total surface and atmospheric water resources. The remaining portion, 0.8%, is the water content in plants and animals.

A whole lot of liquid

The Earth’s closed system has 1,386,000,000 cubic kilometres of water. While hardly anything of it is depleted, the gains may be very insignificant as well. Local water shortages only result from translocation of water resources on the planet.

Who’s well off – or the largest renewable resources of H2O.

In the presented summary, Brazil is clearly the leader. Its renewable water resources run into 8,233 km3. Russia is second best (4,498 km3), and Canada finishes third on the podium (3,300 km3). How does Poland perform in comparison with these countries? To put it bluntly: very poorly! With just 65 km3 of renewable water resources, we are far behind.

VIRTUAL WATER

Each us uses approximately 400 litres of water on a daily average. From among our everyday activities, we selected those which require the largest consumption of water (approximate values):

  • toilet: 20 to 40 litres
  • bath: 140 litres
  • shower: 95 to 140 litres
  • laundry: 130 to 200 litres
  • car wash: 20 to 100 litres.

“Water-intensive” Americans

Each of us leaves his or her own water footprint on the Earth. This is the amount of water used for food production and other consumer goods by a single person in a given country. American make the top of the list. In the US, it is as much as 2,483 m3 of water per person annually. Americans are followed by the Greeks (2,389 m3), Malaysians (2,344 m3) and Italians (2,322 m3), where the differences are clearly insignificant.

In Poland, the annual water consumption per person is 1,103 m3 and in Yemen (which suffers from water shortage) only 619 m3.

What we do

  • we implement systems for the management of water resources, which leads to savings
  • we implement sewerage management systems, we reduce leakage
  • we participate in “learn to drink natural water” programs for schools (Smart Station)
  • we develop educational programs in the power, water supply and sewerage and heat sectors
