Utah's Deseret News is running a three-part series on the impacts of the West's shrinking water supply and the costly battle to find solutions.

Read the first article in the series: "The fight for water: Here's why the West's oldest battle could hit you at the tap"

It begins:

"The West is running out of water.

Its lifeblood, the Colorado River, is being hemorrhaged by cities, by farms and ranches, by power plants and by the more than 30 million people who depend on its water in the United States and another 6 million people in Mexico."
