Right now, as long as gallons of good water flow to thirsty customers, the sourcing and infrastructure of our water supply isn’t important. But all should change, says author Charles Fishman. In his new book, The Big Thirst, Fishman says it's high time we bring attention to the world's most precious resource: where it comes from, how much we use, how we can use less, where frailties and threats exist -- and how we can ensure that good clean water gets to taps in urban and rural communities worldwide.

Boston faced down its own water crisis in 2010, with two million residents boiling water after a pipe failure in Weston, Massachusetts. One year later, we’ll look at how far we've come in protecting and prolonging our own New England water supply, and how we can preserve access to the resource that’s used for everything from drinking, bathing, and power production, to swimming, manufacturing, and transportation.

We also hear from Ken Kellaway, Jr., founder and CEO of Pura Vida H2O. His Randolph company is producing vending machines that dispense chilled, filtered tap water to customers’ own water bottles — without using plastic bottles.
