A deal in the 1920s divided water rights amongst Western states. But back then, water conditions were more ideal. Now that we're in somewhat of a prolonged drought, many water managers are warning that there may not be enough water to fulfill the Colorado River Compact. Matt Jenkins spun an excellent tale about the issue in the March 2 issue of HCN.

And KUNC's Kirk Siegler speaks with HCN editor Jonathan Thompson about future water woes in the West.

Be sure to check back each issue for more interviews with KUNC.
