Solving The Southwest’s Water Problem
Solving the Southwest’s Water Problem
The U.S.-Mexico water treaty is one step toward solving the southwest's water problem. Water expert Robert Glennon suggests a few other things we could do, like not flushing our toilets with drinking water.
Robert Glennon is a regents professor at the University of Arizona and the author of Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What to do About it.
I spoke to him about the U.S.-Mexico Colorado River water use treaty -- called Minute 319 -- signed Nov. 20 by both nations and the utilities in the seven basin states.
He said the treaty is one step in the right direction. In our eight-minute conversation he had a lot to of other solutions to offer.
