The groundwater supply in Cochise County is shrinking. Efforts to stop it haven't worked well

There’s been a lot of growth in the Douglas Groundwater Basin in Cochise County over the past several years. And that growth is leading to a shrinking groundwater supply.

Brendon Derr, an investigative reporter with the Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting, spoke about the issue with The Show.
