The Long Fight Over Mount Shasta Water


Arguments over water are par for the course in the West, but the situation in Mount Shasta has dragged on for a while.  That's where Crystal Geyser plans to open a bottled-water plant, but is meeting opposition. 

The City of Mount Shasta's recent issuance of an industrial waste discharge permit moved things a step further, and drew protest from the group that uses the acronym W.A.T.E.R. and the Winnemem Wintu tribe.  Tribal and W.A.T.E.R. leaders visit with word of their efforts.
