Many people in developed nations take water for granted. It is more or less always accessible to them and not everyone has knowledge about where their water comes from or how much of a shortage we will be in. To help get people to lessen their wasteful water usage, we could maybe introduce new policies. I liked the idea mentioned in class about changing the price of water while thinking of ways to keep it accessible. The idea of making water free until a limit is intriguing because it promotes conserving water as you end up paying nothing for it if you do not waste it. Rebates are also interesting as it allows people and families who cannot afford the higher water prices to still have access to it.
