Noted. Thank you Christeen. A good read and lesson. Don't take for granted everyday things we are fortunate enough to have.

Conserve people!!! If everyone tried a little it could help alot. Take shorter showers, turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth, just do something to stop wasting water! I use the water collected in my dehumidifier to water my plants.

Rural communities and towns will go dry first because they do not have the legal resources to fight "water grabs" by cities. One need only look at the history of water rights in the American West for the last century and there is a pervasive pattern of resource theft for the benefit of LA, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, etc. and at the expense of outlying areas. Thus, while these cities have fountains, golf courses, and neatly mowed lawns, the rest of the West is becoming a desiccated, dead zone incapable of sustaining any life at all.

This report lumps together NY, NY; Newark, NJ, Long Island, NY: & parts of CT.

Each of those areas has a different water supply source. Some are well based which depends on the water table while others are fresh water lake based.

I know it makes for easy reading, but the results are inaccurate.

Every man, women, and child would do well to start storing water in-- uh -- maybe stainless steel or glass containers -- with some kind of research on how to keep the water clean and good ! -- and /OR have water distills with access to the ocean.

Rule 1: Don't build in a desert. Rule 2: If you live in a desert, treat your water use preciously. Rule 3. Everyone should act like they live in a desert.
