The story is familiar: during mankind’s Age of Abundance, now emphatically ended, we squandered water and took wholly inadequate steps to protect it as a resource.
On this overcrowded island particularly, we have designed everything we built for the past two centuries with a view to making rainwater flow as quickly as possible into the sea.
We have drained swamps and wetlands, laid countless millions of square feet of concrete and tar, which rain runs off quickly, with no chance to seep into the soil and refill aquifers.
Even in dry winters, we still get enough water — if only we could hang onto it. But we do not, and the result is the fine, dry mess in which we find ourselves.
