Most of the world's supply of fresh water comes from lakes, rivers, streams, wells, melting glaciers, icebergs and icecaps. So these are the main sources where water is found. A small amount of fresh water is obtained by desalination of sea water, a process utilized by countries in which water is a limited resource e.g. Middle East countries.www.ask.com/answers/66412641/where-is-most-of-the-world-s-freshwater-found

OK i will do that when i answer questions again
Most of the earth's fresh water is stored as ice in the Arctic and Antarctic regions of the globe. About 1.7% of the earth's entire water supply exists in icecaps.
Other useful statistics:
Approx. 97.5% of the earth's water is stored in the ocean and is not usable because it is saline.
The remaining 2.5% is freshwater:
1.7% is found in ice caps.
0.7% is found as groundwater.
0.02% is found in lakes, streams, rivers, etc.
0.001% is found in the atmosphere.
0.001% is found as soil moisture.
0.0001% is found in biological organisms.
Keep in mind that statistics vary from source to source, but this provides a general idea of the order of magnitude difference between volumes of water stored on earth.
