Water, Water Nowhere

It seems fairly normal that utilities such as gas and oil need to be delivered.  But water?  In Chennai, yes.  Due to a combination of poor sanitation and depletion of reservoirs, many people in Chennai have water delivered -- including us.  We're not talking those water cooler jugs.  We're talking tanker trucks.

Here's a small tanker.  And a standard one.

Similar to an oil delivery, the water truck pulls up and hooks in.

The trucks are colorful, almost like giant toys roaming the streets of Chennai.  Spinning a desperate situation into a fun one?

  1. Wow. So that's for drinking, bathing, everything? How long does a "tank" last??
