The world is changing, so should the water infrastructure. The World Health Organization estimates that 2.1 billion people lack access to safe and available drinking water at home. Austin, Texas, has recently become filled with water insecure people, due to water treatment systems that are overwhelmed with flood-caused sedimentation.

City officials continued to tell Newark residents that there was no problem with the drinking water. However, the levels of lead had risen, and once the officials had admitted that there was a problem, it was already too late. Newark residents continued to consume lead, from their drinking water; thus increasing the risk of major health issues.

The seafood industry creates process waters, which contains valuable nutruients. Currently, the process waters is being treated as waste, but can be used in food or aquaculture feed. A new study done by Chalmers University of Technology, shows that the process water can actually be recycled and the nutrients can go back into the food chain.

On October 28th, 2018, the Venice Marathon took place. While running 26.2 miles is already not for the faint of heart, elite and amateur runners were forced to run through flood waters, that reached up to their ankles. Officials later announce that the city was more than 75% flooded.
