Strong work Governor. No Utah water for Vegas! I always say water flows towards
money, but in this case it flows towards common sense.
well it's time for me to apologize. I always thought he would cave. Good
KSL came to our attention about snow in Flagstaff, AZ at their ski resort that
the city use sewer water for snow at their slope. Why not LV do the same for
their water fountains and golf courses which of course they would have to treat
them first. Anything wrong with that?
Kudos to our governor, a wise choice. This probably doesn't
put the issue to bed, but the folks in Southern Nevada need to look in another
direction for their water - the Pacific Ocean.
Both sides together should take out an amount of water that would be sustainable
over an indefinite period. The amount of water should vary as the level of the
water table varies. The existing environment at that location should have its
fair and generous share.In other words, don't kill the goose
that lays the golden egg. In other words, let a generous portion of the water
dependent life at the site continue to exist.
Bravo!! Las Vegas needs to learn to live within its means and not expect others
to sacrifice everything for the city's excesses.
Good job Governor!@DEW, they actually do reuse the grey water on the
green stuff and in the fountains, they just don't advertise it.They
are way ahead of the curve on water conservation, compared to most cities. That
said, I think the Snake Valley needs it own water more than Vegas.
Hallelujah!!!!Thank you to the governor and thank you to all the
active citizens who contacted the governor asking him to refuse to sign the
Snake Valley Water Agreement! It would have done irreversible damage to our
ExCeLlEnT! Thank you, Governor Herbert. (I had to eliminate some of those
excessive capital letters in excellent. That's why it may look a little
strange. Yup, just gotta keep those conversations civil and proper.)
Hats off to Herbert
