The Department of Interior and Water Priorities

Description 

Sally Jewell, the U.S. Secretary of Interior, discusses water issues and the priorities the Department of Interior will lay out surrounding sustainable secured water supplies and healthy water sheds.  "We've got a crisis," says Jewell, California has an ecosystem that will collapse if we don't provide sufficient water.  The Bureau of Reclamation, the state, and the federal government are all critical players in solving California's water needs; for the average person concerned about water, Secretary Jewell "encourage[s] you to burn Twinkies," in an effort to bring on snow and rain in California.
