Terrell Smith - Cape Town Water Crisis

Something that stood out to me was that limitations had to be put on people’s water usage. The city had to make sure no one house was using water more than another, where if they did they were fined. This goes to show how bad the drought was there.

Is global water crisis an environmental justice issue? Why or why not? The global water crisis is an environmental justice issue because if one group of people doesn’t have access to freshwater while another group does, a great sense of lack of fairness arises. Which goes against what environmental justice is about.
