We Must Have Clean Water

As the chair of the Jordan River Foundation, I have learned a lot about the importance of water quality in the Wasatch area.  Utah has some of the best water in the nation running off our beautiful mountains, but we need to work to capture, conserve and preserve this resource as best we can in our desert environment.  Utah is currently the thirstiest state in the nation at 248 gallons per person per day.  As our population continues to grow in Utah, we could begin to face water shortages.  Should this occur, the cost of water would climb and we would not be able to enjoy the same quality of life we know today.  As your representative, I will work with other agencies to find ways to capture, recycle, and conserve more of this precious resource in order to keep Utah hydrated for many generations to come.
