'Water War' For The Colorado River Could Decide The Fate Of 1 In 8 Americans


A recent report by Huffpost shines a light on what could be the beginning of a 'water war' that would decide the fate of up to 1 in 8 Americans. The story, produced and originally published by Grist, warns that for generations, Americans have been using too much of the Colorado River, which serves as the main water source for most of the American West. The river provides water for one in eight Americans, roughly forty-million-people, as well as for millions of acres of farmland. Over-reliance on the Colorado River has allowed for rapid population growth across the sprawling region, from Southern California to Denver. However, as icepack dwindles and water conservation begins to threaten the "Law of The River" those same regions now face an uncertain future. https://ift.tt/2KEctps http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
