7-8 pm Pre-Screening of Western Water -- and Power

Summary of episode: Ever since Western settlers dreamed of deserts in bloom, men have chased the mirage of more water than these arid lands can provide. “Whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting” describes the urgent struggle every generation of Coloradans faces to control this fleeting resource -- creating hydrodynamic history through structures that can propel water to run uphill toward money, and power.
