On Thursday September 11, as part of the upcoming USEE conference at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, we will be holding a special screening of Desert Wars: Water and the West.
It’s a story as old as the West itself; a story of water and power. Who has it and who wants it. Competing interests debate how growth, development, preservation, and conservation are at stake in the future of the West.
Desert Wars: Water and the West, a one-hour KUED documentary film by John Howe, explores these pressing issues by looking at the conflicts surrounding the future of the Snake Valley groundwater aquifer in Utah’s west desert and efforts to tap it for Las Vegas, Nevada.
After the screening, Cecil and Annette Garland, who are extensively interviewed in the film, will be on hand to share their experiences and answer questions. This even is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
