They should use a free market solution, like selling their water supply to Nestle and then paying them for the water. Have faith in the invisible hand.

I was looking for a good invisible hand gif, but then I found this.  This is a thing that exists...

Republicans would never sell a state's reliable water procurements to the beverage manufacturing companies while simultaneously defunding municipal water companies.

To be fair, if you drank the water before the boil notice went out and there was any risk...you'd know it by now.

Good thing they have a reliable power distribution grid that doesn't use an Uber style demand based pricing structure.

This is what bottled water is for. It's not supposed to be for everyday use unless you have no access to fresh, clean water. We buy bottles of water and then reuse them by filling with tap water.

Texas sure has a problem managing to deliver basic public services consistently.  I wonder why?

During college I wrote some document management software for a satellite program.

I discovered a bug and reported "Houston we have a problem"...

... only to find out the hard way that the physicist I was talking to was in the control room for Apollo 13.

I've never been so chewed out, nor deserved it so much :(
