So you can have all kinds of water, but if it's underground or otherwise out of reach, people and plant life can still be in trouble. I'm pretty sure the situation around here is not typical.
The two French citizens that passed away at White Sands National Monument may have done so because they set out on a long hike across the desert with as little as 1 liter bottle of water each. All the water in the world won't help out if you don't have it where you can hydrate with it.

Other issues may have exacerbated the situation.

T was a very sad and unfortunate situation.
