What is economic water scarcity?

Economic water scarcity is when the water that is present is contaminated and not safe to drink. Lots of water-borne diseases are living in this water, and they can be deadly. Typhoid fever and cholera are only 2 of the many diseases that people are exposed to when they drink the contaminated water. This is the only water that they have access to, so they have no other choice other than to drink it.
