All the biggest stakeholders met on how to save the Colorado River. Here's what they discussed

As the Colorado River continues to shrink, stakeholders from across our region are going to have to figure out how to share the water differently in the future — and use a lot less of it.

At the Colorado River Water Users Association annual meeting in Las Vegas, that’s exactly what they tried to do. But  as Alex Hager reports, a lot of the negotiating happened behind closed doors. 

Hager covers the Colorado River for KUNC in Colorado, and he joined The Show to tell us more about what happened last week in Vegas.
