While I agree that we should watch our fresh water usage, I dont think there is a huge water crisis. We can remove salt from the ocean and are only getting better and better at it. I guess what we should be really worried about is maintaining our Ocean....which we have not done. (Oil Spills, garbage gyres, Radiation)

I dont think people should worry about this, water will always be on this planet, it doesnt leave or disapear into the abyss without ever returning, its in a constant cycle, doesnt matter that only in the cities the water is polluted, cause if you didnt know, EARTH would clean and purify that water on its own. Yes we pollute the waters, only in the city's, and the whole "population is going up, so we need to spend more money" is BS. They are writing these articles for people like you, so that you wake up every morning being afraid of water shortages and have absolutely no problem paying higher taxes, higher bills, for "CLEAN" water.
