Utah is the second driest states in the nation, and when we experience drought, as we have for several recent years, water becomes a high priority issue for Utahns. Yet, our water consumption is currently the highest in the nation, at somewhere between 167-248 gallons per capita per day. Considering that our population is expected to nearly double by 2050, smart water strategies are needed now to promote conservation.
HB 143 would require water suppliers to study what it would take to reduce their municipal water use to 175 gallons per person per day.
A House committee will vote on HB 143 TODAY AT 4PM. Ask committee members to pass HB 143 to improve water conservation planning in Utah!
