Yeah, when I first saw the story I thought I read it wrong! Amazing that such a large scale water problem could happen in the US but I expect this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Water is bulky but at least having water for drinking is doable. I've got a good number of the 5 gallon blue Aquatainers, probably time to pick up a few more.
