NPR sent a journalist to South Africa to cover the water crisis. Here is one story about enlisting the help of musicians to create songs to help people keep their showers two-minutes long. https://www.npr.org/2018/09/07/644918801/singing-in-the-shower-to-help-save-cape-towns-water

Here is a very good story about water on the front range in Colorado from the Denver Post, published in January. I don't know why it took me until now to find it, but this is good reporting from Bruce FInley. Looks like the city of Aurora (Just east of Denver) is innovating to tap a harder-to-get water supply before minerals from an abandoned mine pollute it. More people are moving to the front range, forcing agencies to scramble for water supply.
