Some residents have already been forced to join queues for emergency rations amid warnings that 'Day Zero' - the date taps will run dry - has crept forward to 22 April.

City authorities in the meantime are racing to build desalination plants and drill underground boreholes amid warnings the city could become the first in recent world history to run out water.

Almost 2 million tourists flock to Cape Town every year to bathe on sandy white beaches, explore natural features like Table Mountain or to sip wine in dozens of nearby vineyards.

Travel and tourism accounted for an estimated 9 percent or $33 billion of South Africa's economic output last year, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council.

 - “This study showed conclusively that heart coherence could affect saliva and increase crystal structure and order. We know from 20 years of research at HeartMath that heart coherence has many positive health benefits, including helping to reduce stress and improve cognitive function.” – HeartMath Institute

The “power of positivity” is no joke. Studies are emerging every single year in multiple fields of science, and have been for decades. The science of consciousness, also known as “non-material science” is now more popular than ever. Despite all of the empirical evidence that’s emerged, in the form of an UN-countable amount of reviewed studies, professionals in the field, although well aware, are still reluctant to discuss this type of thing openly. But not all of them.

I recently conducted an interview with Dr. Mario Beauregard, a neuroscientist currently affiliated with the University of Arizona. He is one of approximately 100 scientists from within academia bringing light to this issue.

 - Do you know that Tesla has a contemporary in Europe who was involved in equally revolutionary work? Though few have heard it before, the man’s name is Viktor Schauberger, and Viktor worked with water.

Schauberger was born in Holzschlag, Upper Austria in 1885. His father and grandfather were both foresters, and Viktor too followed the path and became the head forest warden for Prince Adolph van Schaumburg-Lippe in 1920. As Viktor roamed remote unspoiled mountainsides, through observation, intuition and heritage, he grew to understand how energy flows through the hydraulic vortexes of alpine lakes and streams.

Viktor used this knowledge to build a series of log flumes to enable efficient access to the high-mountain timber for the first time, but soon realized, due to industrial forest and water management practices, the energy of these systems was being quickly diminished. He foresaw the catastrophic environmental emergency that we face today in the 1920s.

 - Life on Earth depends on the existence of water, but despite it covering some 70 percent of the planet's surface, scientists have never really been sure where it all comes from.

While the popular view has been that icy asteroids or comets could have brought water to Earth billions of years ago in an epic collision that filled the planet's oceans, a new study shows Earth's inner regions had the necessary ingredients to make water all along, hidden deep underground.

According to new computer simulations, chemical reactions taking place in Earth's upper mantle – which lies directly under the planet's crust – could produce water from scratch under the right (read: extreme) conditions.

slovenia water - Last Friday, Slovenia amended its constitution to protect its abundant clean water supplies from corporate greed.

In 2013, Nestle’s then-CEO Peter Brabeck-Letmathe drew the ire of many when he declared that water is not a human right, but a market commodity. Nestle, the world’s largest food company, has been a leader among corporations involved in the privatization of water, often outbidding communities for the right to manage their own water supplies. Though Brabeck-Letmathe’s sentiments are shared by several Western governments, the country of Slovenia has stood up to corporate greed and has enshrined access to clean drinking water as a human right guaranteed by the nation’s constitution.

 - A new solar-powered technology known as The Pipe, which was recently unveiled in Santa Monica, California, can produce a huge amount of drinking water from the sea.

Santa Monica is an 8.3 square mile city situated at a gateway to the Pacific Ocean, bordering the west side of Los Angeles County.

The most remarkable thing about The Pipe is that clean and renewable energy powers it. The technology uses solar energy to turn the salty sea water into drinkable fresh water. The architects behind the technology, Land Art Generator Initiative(LAGI), revealed the machine can generate up to 10,000 MWh of clean power each year. This clean power is enough to turn around 4.5 billion liters (1.5 billion gallons) of salt water into drinkable water for the population.

 - This low-cost, low-tech water condenser could help create water self-sufficiency in communities around the world that lack regular access to clean, drinkable water.

Whereas many individuals in developed nations often worry over catching their favorite television show, a constant stress for approximately 2.3 million people on the planet has to do with obtaining clean, drinking water. Fortunately, a solution to the latter conundrum has been presented, and it’s one that might ease generations of worry in locations where purified water is hard to come by.

The Water Seer collection device relies on simple condensation to collect drinkable water from the atmosphere and can provide up to 11 gallons of clean aqua without one external power source each day. Best of all, it can potentially run forever and does not create greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change.

 - The future of water security in Lima, Peru isn't happening in the city. It's happening 75 miles away and 12,000 feet up, in once-forgotten stone channels that pre-date the Incans.

The channels through the Humantanga district snake across steep slopes, collecting rainfall and water from highland streams during the rainy season, letting it seep into the mountain where it percolates naturally over months rather than running off through streams.

"When you see it, it's amazing and beautiful," says Leah Bremer, a researcher with The Natural Capital Project who spent years working with The Nature Conservancy and local organizations on a fund to improve water quantity and quality in the area. "Some are stone. Some are concrete. It's a combination of the natural and the more modern."

 - Their permit to extract water expired 27 YEARS AGO, but the corporation just kept on going. Finally, activists hope justice will be served.

Campaign group The Story Of Stuff Project have just announced they will be pursuing legal action against Nestlé for illegally extracting groundwater in California for its Arrowhead brand, which has been a key contributor to the State’s drought crisis.

Thanks to generous donations from a huge number of furious citizens, The Story Of Stuff Project was able to raise enough money to film a mini-documentary called ‘This land is our land’. It tells the story of Nestlé’s removal of millions of gallons of water from the San Bernardino National Forest- and it details evidence of criminal activity by one of the world’s most unethical corporations.

Emoto - Human beings are essentially made up of water, and in his pioneering research, Dr. Masaru Emoto’s studies suggest that water also exhibits signs of consciousness and intelligence. 

The science of how intention affects molecules of water is unknown, and the results of Dr. Emoto’s work leave the door open for some big questions about life and about how life itself began on planet earth. Of what is the universe made? And why is water such a unique element in our world, with such unusual properties?

In 2000, a comet carrying enough water to fill a small lake broke apart near the sun potentially validating the theory that comets could have brought the Earth’s supply of water to the planet during its formational stages. It was also recently reported, “…that “a significant fraction” of the water on Earth was inherited from interstellar space, and was there before the Sun was formed some 4.6 billion years ago.” Therefore, the water on this planet was here, or en route, before the planet itself.

 - Californians facing the prospect of endless drought, mandated cuts in water use and the browning of their summer lawns are mounting a revolt against the bottled water industry, following revelations that Nestlé and other big companies are taking advantage of poor government oversight to deplete mountain streams and watersheds at vast profit.

An online petition urging an immediate end to Nestle’s water bottling operations in the state has gathered more than 150,000 signatures, in the wake of an investigation by the San Bernardino Desert Sun that showed the company is taking water from some of California’s driest areas on permits that expired as long as 27 years ago.

Last month a protest at a Nestlé Waters North America bottling plant in Sacramento, the state capital, forced a one-day closure as protesters brandishing symbolic plastic torches and pitchforks blocked the entrances. The revelations have agencies from the California State Water Resources Control Board to the US Forest Service scrambling to justify a regulatory framework that is poorly policed and imposes almost no requirements on the big water companies to declare how much water they are taking.

 - I am writing by candle light. The aching in my hand and the irregular handwriting reminds me that it’s been a long time since I wrote on paper and not a keyboard. The power cut has already lasted more than eight hours and I fear that the combination of events and outcome of what we are going through might be a foreshadowing of what’s soon to come around the world.

It started with an irony, that may well be the perfect metaphor: the largest city in a country that holds 20 percent of Earth’s fresh water supply ends up without any. A combination of climate change, years of deforestation, privatization and a badly managed and corrupt political system have come together in a perfect storm to throw my city into one of its darkest crises ever. We now face a reality of four days without water and two with. We might as well call it what it is: a total collapse.

 - Imagine this scenario: The following is a Public Service Announcement by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Water, July 4, 2015: Because of low water levels in state reservoirs, the Division of Water proclaims a statewide water-rationing program. Starting next month, on August 1st, 2015, water service will turn off at 1:00 P.M. on a daily basis for an indeterminate period of time.  Service will return the following morning.

Now, imagine a city the size of the State of New York with its 20 million people subjected to the same water-rationing plan. As it happens, São Paulo, capital city of Brazil, home to 20 million, is such a city. The water is turned off every day at 1:00 P.M., as reported by Donna Bowater.1

Brazil contains an estimated 12% of the world’s fresh water, but São Paulo is running dry.
