@ConservativeCommonTaterRE: "2 bits-Cottonwood Heights, UT "Any
water use can be seen as "Waste" by people with an agenda".Another negative comment without any details. WHO is the group with an
agenda?''...I didn't say a "Group" with
an agenda. I said "People/Persons" with their agenda.Meaning I can look at how my neighbor uses water and think it's waste.
His lawn, his kids playing in it, his hot tub, etc. But he may look at me and
think the ways I use water are "Waste".We all waste water.
Flushing it, watering our organic garden, etc.===RE:

true.I don't follow Rush. Haven't heard anything Rush
said in at least 10 years.===RE: "Why can't
conservation (something conservatives don't want) be done just for the good

especially conservation of water. I probably conserve water better than you do.
I don't have room to tell you all the things I do to conserve water.Never said it's a bad thing. I just said we can all look at
others and think their use of water is wasteful
When the discussion turns to limiting population I will know that people
actually care about water conservation.

Rush follower. He used that word 25 years ago and it has since been a code word
for "liberals."Instead of giving a negative comment about
those "people with an agenda" just say that water conservation is a good
thing.Why can't conservation (something conservatives
don't want) be done just for the good of the environment?

The issue is that every water district is its own fiefdom. But, you're
right, there is no incentive for government and commercial properties to
conserve. That's why we pass schools and government offices watering their
grass at 2pm on 100 degree days, as well as days when it's been raining for
If we are going to end water subsidies, let's end them all, not just a
few.If water isn't to be subsidized, then nobody gets subsidies
including the poor or new move ins. It costs the same to treat the 1st gallon as
it does the millionth. So no more tiered rates. Just a flat per gallon rate. And
no more raising the rates of established residents to build new treatment or
delivery facilities for newcomers. Add an impact fee to all new construction to
fund these needed infrastructure improvements.Of course, many who
claim to "oppose subsidies" will be horrified at the above two
suggestions. The simply fact is that they don't oppose subsidies nearly so
much as they hate certain lifestyles. The same folks who complain about
morality-based legislation when it comes to sex or mind altering drugs, are
perfectly fine imposing their morality about green grass or how others should
live in the desert. Utah doesn't look like Phoenix so we are bad.I can either support our current system, or a system of paying full price. But
I want consistency both within water and when it comes to healthcare.Or, be honest about true motives rather than claiming to "oppose
