Episode Summary

Watershed: Solutions for the Future of the American West
The Colorado River is the lifeline for an expanding population in seven US and two Mexican states and their booming urban centers that demand water for drinking, sanitation, and energy generation. The river also faces major demand from agriculture -- 70% of the Colorado River's water supports 20% of US agricultural output. Today, the Colorado River already runs dry before it reaches its natural end at the Gulf of California. Unless action is taken, the river will continue its retreat with potentially catastrophic consequences for the millions who rely on it. "Films like Watershed are a necessary part of the solution," says Executive Producer Robert Redford. The film is part of an outreach effort by The Redford Center to promote efforts that will help reconnect the river to its delta.moreless
