New Mexico investors propose to pump groundwater and transport it to population centers in the Rio Grande Valley. Should they or shouldn't they?

This Texas Girl was able to take part in the Arizona Project WET journey into the Mexican Delta to see the effects of the release of water into the Colorado River basin from the southern most point of the Colorado in Arizona into Mexico.
