Do Utahns really need to conserve water? If yes, what do you do?
Dan Nailen: I have a completely xeriscaped yard, so haven’t watered it in six years. I hand-wash my dishes. Hopefully that makes up for running my AC non-stop until October. Bryan Mannos: Since having children negates even the best conservation effort one can practice, I’ll continue to fiddle while water burns. (I have no children I’m aware of.) Scott Renshaw: As a Californian during a 1970s drought, I will never forget the immortal advice of Gov. Jerry Brown: If it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down. Erik Daenitz: I get my H2O by collecting rainwater and the tears of wolves in my eco-friendly multiuse plastic containers. Susan Kruithof: I don’t water my lawn. We live in a desert. Watering grass is so wasteful. The city should give cash incentives to xeriscape your lawn. Kolbie Stonehocker: Definitely not. Wait, what? We’re living in a desert?! Cody Winget: I only drink sparkling mineral water from Italy. They don’t need it. Derek Carlisle: Nah! Just wait till it all goes to shit, walk next door and steal the water storage of your religious neighbor. They’ll turn the other cheek and forgive you—it’s a win-win. Rachel Piper: No. The water in the taps was put on this earth for my use. Mine!
