A water transport company in the US says it’s planning to deploy more than 100,000 water trucks across the country by the end of the year.
The Water Transport Association (WTA) said in a statement on Monday that the trucks would transport up to 100 million gallons of water a day across the US.
More than half the US population depends on water transport to get to work and home.
WTA said the trucks were “designed to safely transport water from one site to another, from one river to another and from one lake to another.”
The trucks are expected to be available by the middle of the decade.
In 2014, US state and local governments approved a $2.8 billion plan to install water trucks in a bid to improve water supply and reduce CO2 emissions.
Despite this, the project was shelved in the face of rising water levels.
