I think people are taking the title too literally, it's not like there will be no water, what this really means is that water from the current sources these cities use is unsustainable with expected usage, which means they'll have to find alternatives, and those will be extremely expensive.

As for people who think this is a problem that someone invented, just look at where these cities are located, and it's no wonder there are concerns about fresh water. Only 1% of the Earth's water is available fresh water, and that's not taking into account how much we've made undrinkable without intense purification (which is expensive), and of course it's not evenly distributed around the Earth, so drought prone areas are in the biggest trouble.

Do you spend your days traipsing around San Francisco? Then congratulations, you live in America's least wasteful city according to a study conducted by Nalgene. The water bottle company questioned 3,750 people in America's 25 largest cities about their transportation use, waste, sustainability efforts, shopping habits, and reuse of items. Nalgene weighted the results to give preference to behaviors with an immediate and significant impact like driving less, recycling more, and reducing trash. The survey's index is based on a scoring system with a potential individual high score of 1930 and a low individual score of 193.

San Franciscans topped Nalgene's list thanks to widespread habits of recycling, turning off the water while brushing teeth, and only using cars for short trips. 86% of San Franciscans also reported that they live an "extremely" or "somewhat" eco-friendly lifestyle, though the definition of an eco-friendly lifestyle is not made clear in the study.

Atlanta came in at the other end of the spectrum, with residents ranking the worst at recycling, throwing out less than two bags of trash a week, using reusable containers, participating in sustainability programs, using energy-efficient lightbulbs, and borrowing books from the library.
Nalgene, of course, had its own motivation for conducting the study. The company recently came under fire for using Bisphenol A (BPA), an estrogen-like chemical, in its water bottles. Nalgene did eventually pull BPA-filled water bottles from the shelves, but the wastefulness study could be the company's attempt to get back in the good graces of eco-minded consumers.
The full list of America's least wasteful cities is below.

Rank City Weighted Score
1 San Francisco, CA 1025.45
2 New York City, NY 1004.01
3 Portland, OR 1001.66
4 Seattle, WA 985.03
5 Los Angeles, CA 960.46
6 Denver, CO 943.77
7 Minneapolis, MN 943.17
8 Washington, D.C. 941.81
9 Boston, MA 941.29
10 Philadelphia, PA 932.59
11 Chicago, IL 931.03
12 Baltimore, MD 927.26
13 Detroit, MI 911.59
14 Pittsburgh, PA 909.42
15 Orlando, FL 901.71
16 Cleveland, OH 900.77
17 Sacramento, CA 899.78
18 Miami, FL 898.49
19 Tampa, FL 896.01
20 Phoenix, AZ 887.48
21 St. Louis, MO 883.38
22 Houston, TX 879.16

running out of water.... how do you run out of water when there is ALWAYS water running
Not literally RUN OUT...but SEE WHAT PEOPLE DON'T GET IT is that YOU are NOT in control over how and where it goes desalination etc or anything for that matter.....for Atlanta since I stay here that has been going on for awhile...The other problem is people don't read on things and take it in consideration that it could be true or not or how it can be fixed.

Do these n*ggas just sit in a room and make up the next problem to throw at us?
No, we sit and wait before it is late to come and want to do something about it. There many news stories and many articles posted alone on BX and on youtube but so many people think EVERYTHING listed is a conspiracy then get mad/upset when it is either a) to late to do anything b) you don't know what to do about it.

Yeah but like I said you nor me is in control of when/how they supply it. No matter if it is 75% of water available.

They are basically running something that can be maintained but AT THE SAME TIME it is hard to share when one state is saying that is NOT enough for the next according to population etc. and more than likely 3 or more states water supply is coming for 1 shared source. So, it is NOT a easy thing to do per se when no matter what you do one state is complaining (population increase) on top of that sometimes it does not rain when you have major droughts...so you know
