    What does water mean to Brazil. Sao Paulo current regulations on residential water, shut off from 11pm till 7am, also sometimes twice a day for hours at a time. Billions of dollars for the World Cup, with much of that ending up in the pockets of promotors, politicians and contractors. Brazil has experienced the worst drought in many years and the river system that supplies the water to SP and surrounding villages was insufficient to supply the people. Yet there was no planning involved to secure additional water service which could have been done. So how do you conserve water, shut it off to the residents for certain times of the day. I'm sure all those in attendance as spectators were sipping their chilled bottle water along with newscaster, and dignitaries. Would they have put up with no water drink, don't think so.
