WATER EVERYWHERE?

Issue

But is clean water as available as we may think? Every day we hear stories about water and rarely pay attention because we assume there's plenty of it to go around.

I am fortunate because I live on an island in New York City, where drinking water is world-renowned for its quality. Each and every day, more than 1 billion gallons of fresh, clean water are delivered from large upstate reservoirs as far as 125 miles from NYC to the taps of nine million thirsty neighbors throughout New York.

However, we can not take this precious resource for granted. When will every human being living on planet earth realize that clean drinking water is a matter of life and death?
