New Battles in California's Water Wars

Hosted by

California's definitive problem is the shortage of water — brought to public consciousness by a third year of diminished rainfall and new battles in the ongoing water war. Politicians are demanding a drought declaration. Governor Brown wants $25 billion for two new tunnels to help bring water from North to South, and San Diego has gone to court against the Metropolitan Water District, which delivers water to 20 million people.
