Severe droughts that could affect large cities are first a human problem. The competition for water could make life in some of America’s largest cities nearly unbearable for residents. A number of industries rely on regular access to water. Some people would be out of work if these industries had poor prospects for continued operation. The other important trouble that very low water supplies creates is that cities have sold bonds based on their needs for infrastructure to move, clean, and supply water. Credit ratings agencies may not have taken drought issues into account at the level that they should. Extreme disruptions of the water supply of any city would have severe financial consequences.

No, I live somewhere that's naturally habitable, not somewhere artificially made habitable.
Same here. We have 5 lakes and two rivers in our small town. The utility charges very little for water. We pay 16 a month for water and sewage. We also have a well to water our lawn and plants.

Did you know that in NY 45% of there water is lost due to leakage in pipes? This is a huge problem all over the US. And will become worse with the aging of our infrastructure.
