Huh? -- Derrick of Midvale, UT|
Until I see the state government buildings, parks, buisness's that have somewhat big lawns, O.C. tanner building. I'm not going to do nothing about saving water. if they seem to like watering during the day, then I can! Why give the home owners tickets and not government buildings, maybe I should give them my own ticket?
Utahns cant conserve anything!!! -- Tracy of Centerville, UT
I am so frustrated with my neighbors overwatering there lawns, I just needed an outlet. Here in Centerville, they say our irrigation water supply will be gone in August, I even received an emergency notice in the mail. They leave it up to the residents to decide how to conserve water. My neighbors water everynight their 3/4 acre lot, each zone for 30 minutes, and others just leave the water on for what seems hours. It seems to me that Utahns need some lessons in how to conserve water and other resources as well. I water my lawn 3 times a week, 20 minutes per zone. Also this state needs to start recycling, another matter altogether.
Rick Bustamante -- Rick of Provo, UT
This goes to all Utah and Utahns. If people are conscious about water we should not see water being sprayed during the day. Look around! it is a desert around here.
Also for the authorities, I have been to their hearings about water; they are sad. If the authorities or the state goverment does not have enough funds then use the same resources you have like the UHP and all the cops around here that all they do is pulling people over for speeding,(they don't have much to do anyway) instead of catching all the robbers getting all the cash out of the many credit unions and little banks around this state tha we have seen on the news. Get real people cops should give tickets for watering during the day otherwise this place will not have anywater in the future. Please look at teh drought map on this website.... Utah is the worse.
when is this going to end? -- Salley of West Valley City, UT
I want to know some real guesses as to when this water problem is going to end. Why does it seem like no one is telling us this? Surely there can be some educated predictions given. We already know that we are in a drought situation. We are trying to conserve. Please give us some ideas as to when we can expect cooler temps, and normal rainfall.
set an example!!!!! -- Oliver of Bluffdale, UT
Whats the deal??? water restrictions,but only for the little people. Every morning The sprinklers are going at pioneer park and liberty park as well as at gateway, and thats just what I've seen every day on the way to work for 2 months now...
The BIG Users -- Pete of Sandy, UT
I wish someone would put residential water usage in perspective to the really BIG users...... Industry and Agriculture. I hear that residential water usage accounts for only 20% or less of overall water demand. It seems that the residential water user is the focus of water conservation efforts where it appears to matter the least! Are there new ordinances, laws, or rules that require cut backs for the BIG users where conservation efforts might be more effective in reducing total water demand? A news story to put this in perspective is needed.
Water at the Hospital -- Tonya of Magna, UT
Just went to Pioneer Valley Hospital, you should see their water show!! They've got 3 broken sprinkler heads that are gushing water 30 feet high! Where is all this water landing? Why, in the street, of course! Didn't it justs rain yesterday?
Miss use! -- Cory of Glendale, UT
I live in north west Glendale of Salt Lake. The manager of the complex puts more water on the street and the driveways than the lawns! After the rains of the 23rd. and the 24th. they watered the lawns and the driveways for more thatn two hours. I would like to report them and stop this miss use of the water.
Conspiracy Theory? -- Craig of Provo, UT
I have a hard time believing that we are in a drought. I truely believe we have some kind of conspiracy going on that is controlled by the state. I would like someone who doesn't have anything to gain or lose, and who isn't controlled by the state, to do a real study on our water situation. The Provo River is flowing rapidly, if we are in such drought, why don't they slow it down a little? Utah Lake seems to be plenty full, as do Payson lakes, Salem pond, and other natural water sources. The only bodies of water that seem to have a problem are the ones controled by the state with valves that can be opened and closed. What is the conspiracy, sucker fish, or something else?
Water Babies -- Jane of Provo, UT
I am so tired of hearing people cry like a baby because they get a ticket or a fine they have to pay because they were watering during the day and didn't get a warning. Haven't they been letting us know that it would come to this and that this would happen. As far as I see it, that should serve as your warning. Aren't we all adults and not children that have to be told two or three times "before we obey". Why don't we stop wasting and start watering at night. Lets be adults about this.
Road watering -- Kass of West Valley City, UT
Hey, have any of you West Valley residents noticed the thousands of gallons of water running aimlessly down 3200 West between 4517 South and about 4600 South about 4 times a week? It's a plugged syphon that's the culprit of the culvert. I'm watching my lawn get crunchy while the street out front has ducks trying to land on it. And...I can't get no....satisfaction either. I've called and emailed and still it flows. Hummm. Got ideas?
