Prud'homme, a journalist and author for over twenty years, recalls the inciting moment for his exploration of fresh water issues when a conversation about bottled water emerged during lunch with his great aunt, Julia Child. The discussion triggered an intensive three-year investigation that led Prud'homme from 600 feet beneath Manhattan exploring New York City's new Water Tunnel No. 3, to Las Vegas, New Orleans, California, Alaska and elsewhere. As a result, his book
