Will Californians Ever Agree about Water?

Hosted by

Both the population and the economy of California are growing, but the amount of available water stays the same — unless it declines, as it's doing now in the worst drought in 20 years. For 30 years, governors and legislators have tried to increase storage and manage delivery for both urban and agricultural users at the same time protecting complex ecosystems. Last week, the latest effort collapsed into partisan wrangling despite what one Senator called "a decade's worth of progress in just a few weeks."
