In the Americas With David Yetman

Drought And New Realities In The Southwest

Season 8, Episode 9 of 10

The Southwestern United States has suffered under lingering drought more than any other region. We track the dwindling Colorado River from its source through the once brimming reservoirs that generated electricity and stored water for millions of users. Now the realities of drought and dwindling water confront forty million users. We follow the river and speak with those affected by the changes in climate and water supply.
