Desert Water Issues

Mitch Teich from member station KNAU in Flagstaff, Arizona, reports on how small communities in the desert are dealing with water issues. In Cedar Valley, Arizona residents don't have their own wells...they share a well. Each year, a different family takes over the maintenance and operation of the well, and an electronic sensor alerts them when the water level drops too low.
