Phil Boas: Lake Powell water cuts are necessary, but they don't solve anything

The Show regularly checks in with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

The water challenges of the western U.S., including Arizona, were elevated last week when the Interior Department announced the possibility of implementing emergency cutbacks in the attempt to keep more water in Lake Powell, which has seen its levels sink to troublesome levels.

Joanna Allhands wrote about her concerns in a weekend column in the Republic. The Show spoke with her colleague Phil Boas to learn about Allhands' thoughts.
