Watershed Agreement: The Truce Ending Washington’s Water War
The $4+ billion dollar plan to help Central Washington farms and fish better survive droughts. After decades of contentious battles and lawsuits over water rights, a diverse group of farmers, irrigators, Native Americans, conservationists, and government officials set aside their self-interests to cooperate and develop one of the biggest water projects. The documentary looks at the history of the water wars in Washington, what convinced the sides to finally come together, the projects each group will get in return, and why some believe the plan spends too much taxpayer money for too little payoff in the face of a changing climate.
