Los Angeles Takes Another Serious Look at Water

Hosted by
LA has become a megalopolis in an arid part of the country by importing water from the Owens Valley, Northern California and the Colorado River. But those supplies are beginning to dry up as demand is increasing. Mayor Villaraigosa wants to impose restrictions on water use, capture the rainwater that now flows out to sea and reclaim the waste water that now goes down the drain.
