Water shortages are coming in the US. It's time for us to act

Most Americans take water for granted. It’s a resource that people assume will always be accessible, available, and consumable. For most people in this country, whether they’re at a public drinking fountain, a restaurant or at home, water is a commodity considered to be at our constant beck and call – but for how much longer?

America’s water supply is in crisis and, if we don’t act now, we face an imperiled future. The latest news last week, that California faces its fourth year of drought, illustrates this point powerfully.
