Downzoning, zoning that typically results in the reduction of housing density, allows for more open space in areas where ( little water or services exists).

How do you know little modifies both nouns in or clause?

Thanks

one is count noun (services) and the other is a non-count noun (water)

little can be used only with noun-count nouns (in this case water)

That's true but

when you use an or phrase does the first adjective describe both?

IMHO.......

"Little" is not an adjective here, it is a quantifier. It "quantifies" the nouns associated.

"in areas where little water or food exists"

"in areas where little water or few services exist"

I think services is a non-count noun. I can't verify it in any of the dictionaries that I have at hand though.

"services" is count noun.... "This employment agency offers few services"

"service" is non-count noun... "I get more service at the other restaurant"
