Water Cops and Drought Shaming

Hosted by

As the severe drought continues in California, the state’s water authority is now actively imposing fines on people who waste any of the wet stuff. Water tables are at historic lows, groundwater is still mostly unregulated, and people are reporting their fellow residents and neighbors for any water malfeasance. KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke with Joe Mathews, California Columnist for Zocalo Public Square, and James Nash, a Los Angeles bureau reporter for Bloomberg.
