About the Show
Water is a central element of life, yet one in eight people worldwide -- 1.2 billion total -- lack access to safe drinking water. In the coming years, the water scarcity in some drought-stricken regions will turn into a global crisis.

Hosted by "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier, "Water Pressures" sheds light on this critical, complex issue by documenting the partnership between villagers in water-distressed Rajasthan, India and students and faculty at Northwestern University. Students in a Northwestern environmental policy class see a model of conservation and community cooperation firsthand during a 10-day trip to India, where a leading nonprofit organizations illustrates the power of pairing traditional wisdom with simple teamwork to solve the water crisis in the Thar Desert.
