In the Golden State of California, freshwater in the San Joaquin Valley is on the brink of disappearance. Governor Jerry Brown's proposal for a peripheral canal is reigniting centuries-old battles over water rights, and environmentalists, citizens, and billionaires alike are all vying for control over California's water supply.
In the final episode of a three part series, Emerson Rosenthal gets his inner Erin Brockovich on as he investigates a water war that could potentially destroy access to California's drinking water for millions. Welcome to California, ground zero of America's water crisis.
