Colorado River Basin states must adopt a water conservation plan soon or the government will step in
The clock is ticking for the seven Colorado River Basin states to come up with a plan to dramatically reduce their water usage.

To get a sense of how the states are doing as the deadline approaches, The Show spoke with Luke Runyon, managing editor and reporter for the Colorado River Reporting Project at KUNC.
