Think of the lost productivity for the parents that have to take off of work to watch their children because of this issue.

Most of their employers have to pay them for time off due to this issue.

How many companies/businesses will tolerate this for much longer? Or move away? Putnam, Vigo, and Parke County doesnt have this problem.

And yet the price of Brazil water (which isn't fit to drink in my opinion .. with or without boiling) keeps going up and up .. with no renovations to the existing (archaic) pipe system.

I'm looking to move out of Brazil .. sell my home of 17 years to get away from the property taxes and the water .. don't know which is worse!
