Water is found in rivers, lakes, oceans, seas, etc. These are called water bodies. More than two third of the earth is covered with water. Most of the water on the earth is salt water. We need fresh water to drink, which is only a very little portion of all the available water on earth.
A major portion of fresh water available in the form of glacier ice, at the north and south poles. It is far away from us. Therefore, we cannot use it.
