With The Drought Contingency Plan Through Congress, Some Argue Attention Should Turn To Water Conservation Efforts

Congress has given its OK to the Drought Contingency Plan (DCP), which has already been signed on to by seven western states — including Arizona. It now goes to President Donald Trump for his approval.

The plan aims to help deal with a water shortage if one is declared, but the DCP does not really take on the issue of water conservation. That was, in fact, a point of contention for some in the Legislature earlier this year.

To talk more about this, The Show reached out to John Shepard, senior director of programs with the Sonoran Institute.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
