Water Rights in California


Marguerite Young, Board Member at East Bay Municipal Water District, discusses California's water rights system. "I think if we don't put everything on the table to figure out whether century-old water rights are somehow sacrosanct and then everything else is up for grabs, it's not going to work. We're not going to get there," said Young.
