City of Los Angeles and Department of Water and Power officials reached a big agreement with Owens Valley air pollution officials over dust control in the Owens Valley. Owens Lake is about 200 miles north of LA near the Nevada/California border.

KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke with Kevin Roderick of LA Observed about the history of all the dust, and how the plan goes forward.
