WHEN WATER FLOWS LIKE MONEY: For millions of people in the arid zones of India, clean drinking water is a luxury. What if instead of spending 3 hours trekking every day in search of clean drinking water, they could rely on a Water ATM set up close to a village or an urban shanty? The good news is that more than 36 districts in India already have access to about 450 Water ATMs. But hold your breath: there are as many 640,000 villages in India. There is a very looooooong way to go. How do water ATMs work? How much do they cost? Can villagers really pay -- and are they willing? Can this path-breaking idea really work on a large scale? We speak to some who sell water like it was cash.
