India Parched City Water Train

India Parched City Water Train

In this Thursday, July 18, 2019, photo, a water tanker driver Ranganathan climbs onto his vehicle at a water filling depot in Chennai, in the Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Demand for water in India’s Motor City, a manufacturing and IT hub on the Bay of Bengal, far outstrips supply, forcing authorities to take extreme and costly measures to deliver potable water to its residents. Like other fast-growing cities in the developing world, Chennai's water woes have been in the works for some time. Years of urban sprawl, rapid population growth and poor management of water resources have now reached a breaking point. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup)
