By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Nevada is the driest state in the nation. Utah, the second driest. It's a story as old as the West itself. Individuals and communities need water to survive, and who has access to how much is always a question. KUED's new documentary Desert Wars: Water and the West looks at the case of the Snake Valley aquifer, and the competition between a growing urban landscape and the ranches and resources of the desert. Doug talks to producer John Howe and others about the culture of water in our region.
