KVCR's Quinn Mays speaks with desert reporter Melissa Daniels about historic changes in the Eastern Coachella Valley that are meant to bring positive change for the aging water infrastructure of the region.

New changes in political representation and funding have opened opportunities to build water and sewage infrastructure that can bring clean water to more lower income homes.
