This weekend, water is flowing once again in one of the largest river restoration projects ever, the Lower Owens River. The river has been dry for 93 years, ever since the Los Angeles water department diverted the flow to guarantee enough water for the arid but growing city. Weekend America's Pat Loeb went to check it out the Owens Valley, 250 miles from Los Angeles.
