You realize that it was a government that installed the shitty pipes and private companies providing an alternate means of getting water right?

Besides, they had regulations. They didn't work.

Capitalism has conscience because people have conscience, and more specifically the purchasers do, and can make their own choices. When government is involved choices are reduced, and good ideas can't compete as effectively against government's subsidized stupidity.
