The Colorado River flows into Nevada and Lake Mead, the nation’s largest reservoir.

Concerns about water levels in the Colorado River are nothing new. David Owen traveled the river end-to-end, past farms and dams; power plants and cities. Then he wrote a book called "Where The Water Goes: Life and Death Along The Colorado River." Ryan's conversation from 2017 lends more perspective to what's at stake.
