Sydney Morning Herald: 'Worst thing ... in decades': Fears for Sydney's drinking water

This article is about some water scientists who averted a water-borne pathogen crisis and then lost their jobs anyway. A "non-emergency" does not make the papers. Things that don't make the papers don't incite political maneuvers. No political maneuvers mean no reward, no recognition, and no enhanced sustainability. 

What has your company averted by making smart investments, sound decisions and by building sustainability into every part of your organisation? What crisis is unwritten? What didn't make the paper that could of if it went bad?

Do not ever underestimate the expense of preventing a future crisis of reputation, revenue generation or sustainability in people, systems and processes.
