Dirty water

I feel as though I see images every day of polluted water -- oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams -- no matter the size of the body of water, they all seem to be at risk. A search limited to pictures just from today yielded three instances of polluted rivers or oceans. Considering that many regions lack water because of climate change, dams or pollution, it's no wonder that private companies are seeing an opportunity in investing in water distribution rights as detailed in this Newsweek story. What do you think the impact of privatizing water could be?
