How would you handle this water crisis?
You've got a water crisis in your city, Mayor (fill in your name here). Because of the growing population, demand for more water, and the ongoing drought, you're running out of water! You are the mayor -- you are in charge. How will you solve the problem, since you want to do what's best for your community (and get re-elected)?
There are only two things you can do, increase the supply of water and/or decrease the demand for water.
