Why aren't these guys being given a crap-ton of money to make many more of these?

possible reasons:

- that particular unit looks very high-tech and pricey.
- the areas most hard-up for water are probably the sprawl on the edges of lima, which would generally be the poorest folks.
- even though peru is in something of an economic boom right now, they're not great at planning ahead about this kind of thing.

in any case, most of lima's water comes from glacial melt, and the glaciers are receding each year. couple that with the fact that the aquifers are being used up, and lima and other cities are looking at some utterly disastrous water shortage scenerios in the coming years... perhaps within a decade. if the politicos had sense, this would be a top-shelf priority for lima and for coastal peru.

i'm not really up on the latest news, though, so perhaps some progress has been made recently...
