"You use a dish and want to wash it. You turn on the faucet; indoor plumbing with flush toilets are as common as daffodils in the spring. This is a Western assumption as is taking a daily shower. Running, potable tap water is almost a given almost everywhere in the US and modern countries ( and thus, the Flint crisis is shocking). We know about the scarcity of water in developing nations and always buy bottled water while traveling abroad. But it’s one thing to know that water is scarce and it’s another to see a line in Kathmandu where at least 100 people wait to fill up their bucket on a Saturday for their family. It’s another to not be able flush the toilet because there is no water in the pipes. It’s another to think water could make you sick rather than hydrating your body."
