The Show regularly checks in with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

As the drought continues and climate change’s impact is felt even more deeply, dealing with Arizona’s water challenges has taken on a dramatic immediacy. And that will include conservation — possibly required conservation in the next couple of years.

The Show spoke with Phil Boas of the Republic about a weekend column featuring Tom Buschatzke of the Arizona Department of Water Resources and Ted Cooke of Central Arizona Project. Boas talked about how dire the situation has become.
