Power, justice and water in the West
Eight INN newsrooms spent more than three months reporting on water issues in the Western U.S. The participants — California Health Report and High Country News; SJV Water and the Center for Collaborative Investigative Journalism; Circle of Blue; Columbia Insight; Ensia; and New Mexico In Depth — documented serious concerns including contamination, excessive groundwater pumping and environmental inequity. For more INN reporting on this issue, see “Tapped Out: Power and water justice in the rural West.”
This project was made possible by a grant from The Water Desk, with support from Ensia and INN’s Amplify News Project.
This project was managed at INN by Amplify Collaborations Editor Sharon McGowan.
