FROM THIS EPISODE

Three years into the worst drought in California history, Santa Barbara is looking for water. While many Southern Californian cities are utilizing alternative water sources -- such as rainwater and water recycling -- the South Coast remains dangerously reliant on water from Lake Cachuma and a pipe into the state water project. From importing supplies to re-opening its desalination plant -- what are the costs? And what's the environmental impact?

On December 12, Warren Olney hosted a discussion before a live audience at Music Academy of the West in Montecito with a panel of local experts to discuss the state's paralyzing drought and Santa Barbara's sustainable future.
