Just Add Water: Life in Arizona

From Terrascope Radio | Part of the Terrascope Radio Major Features series | 22:09

A light-hearted but serious exploration of how water is used, conserved and transported in Arizona.

Img_3414_small A team of young producers explores water in Arizona: How people feel about it, how it is used, how it gets from one place to another, and how it could be conserved. They follow the path of a droplet of water, from the Rocky Mountains, through dams, rivers and diversions, and then hundreds of miles across the desert. They talk to ordinary people, as well as to the Federal and state officials who set water policy. And they visit a Native American community that has had to learn to survive for nearly a century without its beloved river but is now beginning to see its water return.
