Residents of Cape Town feel like they are guinea pigs. Their water crisis was thrust upon them and they had no one but themselves to address the challenge.
Cape Town, South Africa, faces a major water crisis, but the city has managed to stave off Day Zero – that is, the day the city would actually run out of water completely – for the foreseeable future.
