Groundwater: To Enact a Law for the Common Good
In 1980, in a remarkable effort that might seem impossible today, the desert state of Arizona protected its water resources by passing the celebrated Groundwater Management Act, a landmark law in the history of the American west. This film is the story of that achievement. Told with humor and moving interviews with many of the players involved, this collective memoir explores major themes that still resonate today when so much of the world is struggling to stop the depletion of finite groundwater supplies.
