In this photo provided by the Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, a makeshift repair to a water line is seen Aug. 28, 2012, in Kivalina, Alaska. Residents of a small Inupiat Eskimo village whose water supply pipeline was damaged by late summer storms are monitoring every drop of precious water they use, but officials there fear that might not be enough to last them through winter. That Kivalina even has water at all is a testament to efforts involving multiple partners including a Minnesota church that raised $1,100 for fuel to help villagers go out in boats and collect fresh water.
