Cities and counties in Michigan have certainly had major problems with water the last few years.  There's the Flint situation that still isn't close to being resolved and many have already forgotten.  Right here at home we've continue to deal with the PFAS issues which don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.  Now we may be dealing not with water quality but instead water availability.
