Title: Water Conservation: Denver, CO
Url: http://www.teachersdomain.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.earthsys.dam/
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Dams are widely distributed throughout the U.S. Their impact is perhaps most apparent in western cities, many of which lack a sufficient local water supply and thus rely on water diverted from far-away sources, particularly man-made lakes. This video segment shows how the city of Denver, Colorado, faced with a growing water crisis, developed and later abandoned a plan for a nearby dam and instead adopted policies consistent with a broader water-conservation strategy. The segment is three minutes forty-nine seconds in length.
