You are forgetting the enormous environmental cost of transporting the water, espcially in order to support settlements in otherwise arid places.

RE waste: contaminated water might eventually evaporate and return to its origin in the grand cycle of nature, but it will no longer be viable for most uses, and has a detremental effect on nature. Don't you remember that dead fish icon on the bottles of rodinal, reminding you that discharging the liquid back to nature will have an adverse effect on marine life?
