A large tree can evaporate/deplete/consume over 90 gallons of water per day and
some trees evaporate/deplete/consume up to 400 hundred gallons of water per
day.Typical indoor water evaporation/depletion/consumption for a
Utah house is less than 9 gallons per day.In other words, a large
tree is equal to at least 10 houses's of indoor water depletion.In Utah, the Division of Water Rights spends $3,600 to process a water
transfers (change application) 1/10 of the water a tree depletes. This does not
make any sense and is expensive. Looks like the Division of Water Rights is
really a planning and zoning department for houses without access to city water.
No water permits needed to plant trees, but water permits need to
plant footings for houses without access to city water lines. All
those planted trees are great and equal to the water depletion for 3 million
houses or a population of 9 million people's indoor water usage.Cleaning the air has a water cost.
