Public utilities association urges Congress to look at warming's impact on water supplies

How will water supplies in the United States be affected by climate change? How should the federal government be addressing water issues in a cap-and-trade bill? During today's OnPoint, Michael Arceneaux, deputy executive director of the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, makes the case for including water research and adaptation features in climate legislation. Arceneaux highlights several legislative proposals in the House and Senate that, he feels, adequately address water issues. He also discusses the public's perception of water scarcity issues and the need for public outreach.
