High And Dry: A Deep Dive Into The Water Crisis


From the parched California coast to soaring water bills in New York, this episode of Reveal takes an in-depth look at water issues around the country.

Reporters track down water guzzlers in the Golden State, where some people are using millions of gallons of water in a year in the middle of a historic drought. But their identities are kept secret.

Further southeast, we explore a fight for clean drinking water that’s been raging for decades along the Texas-Mexico border. To the west of Texas, we travel to a desert to unveil an aspect of the global thirst for water.

And from the desert, we head to New York City, where the buildings aren’t the only things climbing sky high. Water bills are skyrocketing – what’s behind this and who does it affect?

Listen to the epsiode here.
