In addition, KCET will air the special 8 p.m. Wednesday, with a rebroadcast the following night at the same time. It will air nationally on KCET's sister platform, Link TV (DirecTV Channel 375 and DISH Network Channel 9410).

"The conversation will explore the role that residents, businesses, farmers and government play in meeting our water challenges as well as how the rest of the nation is impacted by California's water policies," the station wrote in a news release.

KCET has set up a digital hub for more information about the drought crisis here.
