The Great Lakes are, from west to east: Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and are a dominant part of the physical and cultural heritage of North America. Shared with Canada and spanning more than miles (1, kilometers) from west to east, these vast inland freshwater seas provide water for consumption, transportation, power, recreation and a host of other uses. Notice how of the world's total water supply of about million cubic miles of water, over 96 percent is saline. And, of the total freshwater, over 68 percent is locked up in ice and glaciers. Another 30 percent of freshwater is in the ground.
