Episode Summary

Water formed natural boundaries long before bridges and highways crisscrossed the country. But, over time, water changes course - and conflict often ensues when it does. Why do some states seem to get more water than they need while others go without? Today, far from forming stable borders, rivers, lakes and streams are still changing the map - and breeding conflict.
