Tapped Out

Power and water justice in the rural West

Nine INN newsrooms spent several months reporting on water justice issues in the rural Western U.S. The participants — California Health Report, Center for Collaborative Investigative Journalism/SJV Water, Circle of Blue, Colorado Public Radio, Columbia Insight, The Counter, High Country News and New Mexico In Depth — explored issues including contaminated water, drought, overuse of groundwater and land ownership. This series is a followup to an earlier INN collaboration called “Tapped Out: Power, justice and water in the West.”
