WATCH: Utah's Uncertain Water Future

Utah's Uncertain Water Future explores Utah's relationship with water -- from the days when pioneers dug canals by hand to a future riddled with deep droughts and rising  demands. The documentary focuses on how Utah is managing these challenges, especially in fast-growing southwestern Utah.
