World Water Day
In celebration of World Water Day, the Colorado Water Center, in partnership with the Environmental Justice Working Group and the Student Sustainability Center, is hosting a special screening of the award-winning National Geographic documentary Water and Power: A California Heist.
Water and Power: A California Heist traces the story of California’s complex water system, in which a handful of corporate land owners took advantage of a state-engineered system and gained control of the state’s most precious public resource, while drought left local homeowners with dry wells. California residents and farmers face powerful barons in the struggle to secure water rights in this fresh historical account of profit and interests.
