    In the sixth and final installment of the "Planning with Water" series, host Peter Neill follows up on last week's episode in which he described the collapse of the water system in São Paulo, Brazil, a city long thought to have an inexhaustible water supply. In this episode he offers a positive example of a city in Moravia in the Czech Republic that is planning for a water system crisis before it's too late. The "Planning with Water" series looks toward building a new value premise and societal change around water as the most valuable commodity on earth, essential to our future survival.
