Water Under Pressure: Growing Demand (S2 Ep 4)
Play • 32 min

The need to use every drop of water – multiple times over – matters. In Colorado, 80% of the precipitation falls on the western side of the continental divide, but 90% of the population lives to the east, in the Front Range. As the urban corridor continues to grow rapidly, the need for water is even more urgent. And often that water is coming from somewhere else. 

This time on Water, Under Pressure, the Front Range of Colorado perspective. What are the water needs of a growing city? And is water from the San Luis Valley really the only solution? 

Water, Under Pressure is a podcast about the increasing demands on water in Colorado. And how the choices we make now could tear us apart or help us to navigate our uncertain future.
