The West has some of the fastest growing cities, and the least amount of water to quench the thirst of agriculture, industry and urbanization. The mighty Colorado can't keep the taps running forever. What are the alternatives and who owns water anyway? On the next Talk of the Nation, join Neal Conan for a look at the water woes in the West, on a special broadcast from NPR West in Los Angeles, from NPR News.
