I'd bet against it. We are addicted to big project thinking. Here we've just 
invested heavily in huge and massively expensive desalination projects when the 
sensible thing to my POV would be to build a highly diffused network of small 
and even domestic level purification plants and recycling facilities, 
especially considering that the overwhelming proportion of water that we use 
does not have to be drinkable or even clean. But there is no value in that for 
government, construction and employment in the big ticket, banner headline, 
short term approach that we seem to prefer.
