The French discovered how to do this

Wind turbine creates water from thin air
The company aims to start rolling out the giant products for sale later in 2012, initially focusing on remote communities in arid countries where water resources are scarce. 
"This technology could enable rural areas to become self-sufficient in terms of water supply," says Thibault Janin, director of marketing at Eole Water. 
"As the design and capabilities develop, the next step will be to create turbines that can provide water for small cities or areas with denser populations," he adds. 
Eole Water is currently displaying a working prototype of the 24 meter tall WMS1000 in the desert near Abu Dhabi that has been able to produce 62 liters of water an hour, says Janin.
We may owe the French a great deal for preventing world wide water wars in the future because of this....

260 gal/day/turbine isn't going to solve very many people's water crisis.

Of course not. But it's a start in the right direction. We're going to need every available program to help us, ocean desalinization, reclamation, gray water.. etc, besides just educating our citizenry to stop wasting clean water.
