Tired of the deceit...

First off... why is there a water shortage??? Didn't they tell us the drought was over a couple years back? Sure seems to me like we've had quite an abundance of snowpack the last couple years

I think, in all actuality, that this wouldn't be such an issue if Utah would stop selling our water 'downstream' to places like Nevada, who refuse to use their own reserves because that would impede on their profits from the tourist trade!!! My opinion... I wouldn't share with the selfish kids, especially when it hurts our own!

Listening

I don't think there is a water shortage. It appears the City is making advance plans for when there is a shortage. The article was not clear on this.

Shortages=developing

The state of Utah and its many cities have been in denial of our resources and the limits it puts on developement. Governments idea of resource and developement is to force everyone to cut use so they can add more developement that can't reasonably be accomodated. Water departments around the state had better be speaking up and telling local governments that resources for developement are not there. It has happened in Las Vegas and here in Utah, both desert states with no water resources. During times of drought we can expect more water shortages and developement still continues to drain any resources. Utah is limited for developement and the sooner our government gets out of their denial mentality the better off Utah will be. Ogden will not be the first city to publicly announce shortages and put every citizen at risk. Water shortages are a product of overdeveloping and greed and current levels of use is not sustainable. Utah has no water rights to Lake Powell and have failed to follow through on projects to pipe water from the colorado that began 30 years ago and we are still paying taxes and funding this dead project.
