Abstract:

Cadillac Desert relates the story of the epic quest for water and the role it has played in the transformation of the American West. This third episode traces the fierce political and environmental battles that raged around the transformation of California's Central Valley from semiarid desert into the most productive and environmentally altered agricultural region in global history. It illustrates the role that presidents, governor, and giant agri-business companies have played in the ebb and flow of water. The program then follows the recent trend in which water is diverted away from agriculture and toward cities and wildlife.
