SCOUT-RESOURCE ISSUES

Draining the West

  • Aired: 05/16/2002
  • 56:49
  • Rating: TV-G
As the West's population increases, the battle over who controls the West's scarce water supply becomes increasingly complex. Urban growth, economies that are moving away from agriculture and mining and towards tourism, and the "wild cards"--endangered species and tribal treaty rights--point to the need to examine the means by which water use has been governed.
