New Mexico’s limited supply of water is deeply problematic. With a fast-growing population and ever present drought, what does New Mexico’s future look like? Our guest today is one of the most prominent water experts in the United States, and the Chair of President Clinton’s Commission on Western Water, UNM law professor Denise Forte.
Today’s program raises three basic questions: How serious is our current lack of water? How is it that the general public still uses only about 10% of New Mexico’s available water supply? And, can we get to sustainable water use in New Mexico and, if so, how? Please join host Stephen Spitz and UNM Professor Denise Forte for an exploration of these vital issues.
