Field Work Summer 2019 - Yasmina Choueiri
When communities have water shortages, they tend to develop alternative water systems to overcome these shortages. These systems can take different shapes and forms. To satisfy their freshwater needs, communities can directly pump water from wells, receive water that is delivered through water trucks, or collect rainwater in reservoirs and use them during the dry period. To satisfy their drinking water needs, communities often rely on bottled water, but only if they can afford it.
