They are right. Much of the infrastructure is old, fragile, and running at or over capacity. And there are a lot of pumping stations along the way that need power.

Most Americans could survive for months on internal fat reserves, but without water they will shrivel up fast. The thing that moves it to the top of the list is the fact it is physically impossible to evacuate people out or truck in water fast enough if NYC or LA have an event.
