Availability information for this program

It's a story as old as the West itself; a story of water and power. Who has it and who wants it. Competing interests debate how growth, development, preservation, and conservation are at stake in the future of the West. This one-hour KUED documentary film by John Howe, explores these pressing issues by looking at the conflicts surrounding the future of the Snake Valley groundwater aquifer in Nevada and Utah's west desert and efforts to tap it for Las Vegas, Nevada.
