The Colorado River Water Supply


ProPublica reporter Abrahm Lustgarten discusses the issues some states are having with the Colorado River's water supply. "The seven states that share it have divided up an amount of water that they estimated runs in it, and that number is 16.5 million acre feet. [...] over the last hundred years, the river has flowed with about 14.8 million acre feet," said Lustgarten.
