71 year-old Robert Martin is leading the charge to bring city water to his small hamlet of ten homes outside of Ruleville, Miss. In the meantime, he's been relying on a "shallow well," and has even taken $15,000 out of his retirement savings to dig a more sustainable well. (Photos courtesy of Katti Gray)
