Does Arizona have enough water to deal with drought and other challenges?

The Valley's rapid growth likely wouldn't have been possible without water from the Colorado River via the Central Arizona Project. But the Southwest's ongoing drought has some concerned about whether Arizona will have enough water for the future.

Kathryn Sorensen, Water Resources Director for the City of Mesa, and Robert Glennon, Professor of Law and Public Policy at the U of A and author of " Unquenchable: America's Water Crisis and What to Do About It," discuss the important planning steps Arizona has taken, and whether the public, through conservation, could be doing more to help.
