What are likely givens here:
1. There is likely lots of available water nearby given the vast wetlands north of town.
2. The infrastructure for water delivery is insufficient to provide adequate water to the town.
3. The town's population and water demands will continue to grow.
4. The water system is managed by one person who does not have the money, resources, or community support to provide an adequate system.
5. There is little, if any, government funding for water management. There is no formal means to raise funds locally except through volunteer collection methods, which does not work well.
Small towns like this around the world often have community-based water management boards that determine sources of funding, infrastructure needs, implemtation of delivery systems, and water conservation programs.
My lack of knowledge in this area prevent any suggestions on how this might be done, but I do think it worthy of ongoing public debate.
