Drought in California has made headlines across the nation – even the world – and the state has started making plans to deal with it, from limiting residential water use to working to change laws on how water is stored and shared. But California isn’t the only state in the West facing drought and issues of how to use water and other environmental resources to serve a growing population. Nevada is also dealing with a long-term drought and Governor Brian Sandoval has developed a Nevada Drought Forum by executive order. Insight talks with hydrologist Justin Huntington about some of the issues facing Nevada due to drought, he is on the Nevada Drought Forum, and how they’re different from California.
The Nevada Museum of Art is currently featuring an exhibit titled, "Tahoe: A Visual History" and it’s the five-year project of Ann Wolfe, the Senior Curator and Deputy Director of the Nevada Museum of Art. You can take a quick tour of some of the exhibit with Amanda Horn, Director of Communications, through the videos below.
