Beyond the Mirage: The Future of Water in the West

Episode 1 of 1

A prolonged drought in the West has put increased water pressure on the Colorado River and has fostered a unique blend of competition and collaboration among Western states. The search for solutions, some homegrown and some found abroad, will illuminate the path forward for the entire Colorado Basin and quite possibly the entire nation. BEYOND THE MIRAGE explores the West's water crisis in detail, including how Americans arrived at this situation. It also examines emerging water conservation technologies and how they might offer solutions to this global crisis. Through interviews with noted public policy and environmental experts, including Robert Glennon, Regents Professor & Udall Professor, Law and Public Policy; Gregg Garfin, National Climate Assessment Contributing Author, Associate Professor of Climate, Natural Resources and Policy, University of Arizona; and Patricia Mulroy, Senior Fellow, William S. Boyd School of Law, UNLV, Climate Adaptation and Environmental Policy, Brookings Institute, the one-hour documentary puts viewers at the center of this issue and prompts a candid discussion about water resources and the need for viable, sustainable solutions.
