Today there is one metropolis in dire need of more water because its resources are finite in this regard. H2O has always been a problem for this city, even as it is one of the largest if not the largest metropolis in America. And this problem has become more desperate as the population increases and the resource cannot be expanded.
This is located high up in the mountains surrounding the plains, a man made reservoir that is called a lake. The water delivery Los Angeles is now a thing that is in high demand for consumers in this city. The people remain more wasteful of their water resources while it is not something that can be easily renewed by nature.
Some other areas of California and surrounding states may have more resources in this regard. And the companies that do the deliveries will source their liquids from these areas, not from the lake which sometimes dries up now. This has become crisis proportions for the people in this city, and certainly a headache for any new set of administrators.
The fact that there is more things that can be done is not lost on these folks, though. And even some filtration plants are being planned to take water from the sea and convert it for human use. This is more expensive, but in the long run this has to studied and even applied because of the need of water for many uses for this city.
Cleaning, washing and other stuff that has to be done relies on this resource. And industries need a lot of it to run and make their productions effective. People themselves have to have it in order to do the most essential domestic chores for their homes.
Water delivery may be made by tank trucks that roam the city or are commuted through long distances. The larger the tank, the more it is efficient but some may be inconvenient when being used in areas where there are lots of traffics. Mostly, they run in off hours and deliver their stuff for storage in receptacles that are prepared for them.
Many people now rely on these for their needs and mostly industries have good need of them. While this is relatively inexpensive now, these services do not really provide enough, not when the liquid is used extensively. For now, it can temporarily solve some supply problems but not when the main source is dried out or no longer operable.
The source is slowly becoming desert at the edges, which it was originally, and the rains cannot often fill up the needed level. Thus, there are also plans for expanding the highland lake and making more distribution systems, dams and canals. But these are merely plans and the government of Los Angeles need to move on these fast before time runs out.
The place has so many humans now, all needing lots of H2O to work and live. They may be aware of the problem but cannot do anything about it except make their votes count. But the city of Los Angeles is quickly drying up and more resources for this line have to be available before the decade is out.
