Due to an increase of pollution entering wastewater, storm water, and public water management in uncertain environments is itself becoming a serious public health concern.
For example, ecological indicators include severe weather, global warming, sea level rise, extinction events and effects of pollution. Indicators of social collapse include political uncertainty, civil unrest, monetary stress, supply chain disruption and deadly ecological events like the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since January 5, 2016 Flint Michigan has been in a state of emergency. As of December 8, less than 500 service lines still need to be inspected. The city hopes to finish doing so by December 31, 2020. So why is the Flint Michigan 5th anniversary of a state in emergency just a few weeks away and still no reliable end is in sight?
It's obvious that partisans unwilling to help are not part of the solution. Instead, they end up as yet another burden on Governments who do act but are limited by dwindling or compromised resources.
Catch-22 mismanagement continues to produce inevitable fiscal limitations due to events like pandemics, natural disasters, climate change, economic stressors and deviant behaviour. Human social contracts are failing under current leadership. There's just not enough resources trickling down through the catch-22 net to continue on our present course and still survive.
Over 97% of all water on Earth is salty. Under 3% is fresh, most of which is locked away in the ice caps. The atmosphere, rivers, lakes and underground stores hold less than 1%. The water cycle driven by the sun, lifts purified water from the land and oceans, to fall again as rain or snow.
The absolute minimum a person needs for domestic use is 5 litres a day, with a more realistic figure around 20 litres, a developed world citizen consumes well over 100.
- Always VOTE for a better way to repair, avoid Catch-22 mismanagement and to discontinue inevitable deviant behavior and fiscal limitations.
- Pay attention to early indicators of pollution entering wastewater, stormwater, and public water systems.
- Hope for the best, plan for the worst, and check our recommendations for individual or family water management in uncertain environments.
