Utah's Uncertain Water Future

KUED Channel 7

  In a new documentary on KUED Channel 7, KUER News reporter Judy Fahys explores how Utahns have dealt with water historically and how they’re thinking about it today. Historic drought conditions and growing populations have compelled states across the West to reexamine how they use and conserve water, and Utah, the second driest state, is certainly no exception. Fahys has talked with people engaging water issues across the state, and she joins us Monday to discuss Utah’s uncertain water future.

The latest UtahNOW production, “Utah's Uncertain Water Future,” written and produced by Judy Fahys, premiers on KUED Channel 7 on Wednesday, May 6, at 7:00 P.M. DETAILS

You can also attend a free advance screening of the documentary on Tuesday at 7 P.M. at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. Reporter Judy Fahys will be on-hand for a Q&A after the screening. DETAILS

As she reported this story, Judy Fahys relied on the book Blue Revolution by Cynthia Barnett [Amazon|Indiebound].
