Utah has some of the best water in the nation running off of our beautiful mountains. But we need to work to capture and conserve this resource. Utah the thirstiest state in the nation, at 248 gallons per person per day. As our population continues to climb in this great state we may face a water shortage. The cost of water would climb, and we will not be able to enjoy the quality of life as we know it today. As your representative, I will work with other agencies to help capture more, recycle and conserve our precious water.
