Water, and whether there'll be enough for the future, is front of mind for many Arizonans — especially those who are helping with the planning, including elected officials, engineers and policy experts.

The drama has been amped up thanks to concerns about how much water is left in Lake Mead, and whether Arizona’s work with other western states on a drought contingency plan will be a compromise that doesn’t leave us high and dry.

Friday morning in Tempe, the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute is hosting an issues and answers forum called Water in Arizona: Past, Present and Future.

The keynote speaker is attorney and native Arizonan Grady Gammage. The Show spoke with Gammage and asked for his perspective on the current state of water here.
