KXCI's Melissa Mauzy talks with UA professor Robert Glennon in the second episode of her ongoing series about the future of the water supply locally, nationally and across the world. Listen to the show here.

Here's Mauzy's summary of the program:

In this episode Dr. Glennon and I talk about how water markets work in the United States. We take a look back at the American legal history that makes water trades difficult and sometimes impossible. Focusing on his new paper “Shopping for Water” prepared for The Hamilton Project we discuss solutions to overcoming that history in order to make water markets a more viable solution for re-allocating water among farmers and between agricultural, industrial, and municipal uses. As well as going in-depth about how trades of water work in the U.S., Glennon shares simple ways we can all conserve water in our daily lives, because it is the first step to making conscious decisions about water at a policy level.
