    I have a solution to all these problems and all of the worlds water problems can be solved with an Atmospheric Water Generator. Not new but no one seems to realize how much water is in the atmosphere, I believe it's something on the order of 4 trillion cubic gallons of water. Can you guys please do a huge story or create awareness to such a simple technology that can fix all the worlds water problems including some of the driest deserts. Here's an article on the huge success it's already having in Peru: http://bigthink.com/design-for-good/the-first-billboard-in-the-world-to-make-drinking-water-out-of-thin-ai

    Thanks! :)

    Outlaw Mandatory Sewer/Septic.

    Right now, new builders are forced to have either a sewer connection or a septic system. There is no incentive to break away from the current, wasteful paradigm of water toilets. If you stop requiring a connection to these insane systems, you allow builders to save money (and water) by using a paradigm of composting toilets and greywater irrigation.

    Water and sewage are not meant to go together. It's time for people to be rewarded, instead of punished, for wanting to compost. And save water in the process.

    They can build more water reclamation plants. Recycle! The way of the future :-)
