Will it be loo high? It might appear to be more economical to wail for a downward curve in (he whole structure of prices and wages before undertaking the kind of construction programs required to meet our needs. But where are Ihe signs that such R curve is in the making? And how long can we afford to wail? ( ., ! ; II took jnsl one hot, dry summer to Imticri! fhe water supply of many millions of people. Suppose next year—or the year after— brings similar coniiitions? Picture a shortage lhal goes beyond (he critical stage. New- York was only days away from such a crisis. Some smaller places went through It. Piclure * water supply in;tde(|uale to handle B serious fire. Picture a wafer supply insufficient to maintain proper sanitation. Picture n water supply no longer able to keep Industrial processes functioning. The price of keeping pace with fhe need fur water may seem high, hut what about the price of failure? One uncnnlrolled fire, one epidemic, a group of major Industries lost to the community—any of Ihese could involve n'n expense beside which the price of improved water supplies—even with costs what they are—would hardly be noticeable. Waler is essential 1o life—Ihe life of a cify ns well as the life of B human being. Without water, H. man dies. Without water, a community faces the same fale. In the face of n crisis, no price can be too high. High prices paid to prevent crisis are low prices!
