Though 70% of Earth’s surface is water, only approximately 2.5% is fresh water and in some places clean drinking water is scarce. After the discovery of a fresh water spring flowing deep in the Mediterranean Sea, scientists found a way to capture and deliver that valuable resource to the surface. Without depleting or damaging the ecosystem, they were able to engineer a device to harness this precious necessity.
