Sprawl and Water Use...

Apparently, sprawl is a thirsty mistress.

Indeed, this story discusses how sprawl development patterns are exacerbating water use problems:
The government projects that at least 36 states will face water shortages within five years because of a combination of rising temperatures, drought, population growth, urban sprawl, waste and excess.
With all the discussion of Peak Oil, maybe the discussion of Peak Water needs to become more prevalent in some regions.
