This is a re­source that has largely not been priced. Wa­ter is free. If some­thing is free it’s not sur­pris­ing that it gets overused. If wa­ter is both free to drink and use and free as a waste dis­posal source it’s not sur­pris­ing that we have trou­ble. The good news I think is if one could imag­ine, so­cially and re­li­giously ap­pro­pri­ate in­sti­tu­tions that could cre­ate prices for this re­source we would see very rapid progress.
