Amber Waves of Change: High & Dry (Part 1)

The number one issue affecting all things in western Kansas is water.  University of Kansas Journalism Professor David Guth travelled the region, conducting interviews for an upcoming book about issues affecting rural communities.  In this report, Guth says there’s agreement on the need to conserve water… but almost no agreement on how to do that.  (This report is part 1 in a series titled, “Amber Waves of Change,” where we hear about issues affecting the rural Midwest.)
