There is a water crisis? Putting millions of people in a desert where it never rains is not my definition of a crisis. That's called PP planning.

Yep. Around here most years we have trouble getting rid of it fast enough.

Damn stuff practically bubbles out of the ground some places and when it's not doing that it's falling from the sky. (even when we really don't want it to.)

Currently my bill for two months runs about $150. $10 is for water and sewer and the remaining $140 is for administration and environmental regulation and analysis by clean water services.

There is not nearly the issue with water availability. It is more an issue with the administrative and political parasites and leaches that attach themselves to the issue.
