Found this site interesting. According to the university of Nebraska, Utah is largely out of the drought.
Water use in the structure goes up, but overall water use goes down. Those lawns use way more water than condos, it’s not even closeI've seen data sets on this, I'll find them again. But unit for unit, sure. A two bedroom condo uses less water than a five bedroom single family home. But when you have six condos on the same footprint as the single family home, you're using more resources with the condos.
Some cases perhaps, but I water my lawn twice a week not going for the hank hill lawn. Just my wife, the dog and me using water in the house. I'd venture to guess the amount of water being used in condos that would fit on the footprint of my property would be significantly higher than my house. Now if I had 5 kids using water it might even out a bit, but if every one of those condos has 2-3 people i'm certain it would still use more water than me with 2 water users and my lawn. Not to mention the hotter temps created by the concrete jungle vs the 20+ trees I have in my yard.Water use in the structure goes up, but overall water use goes down.

Florida is getting all that. All we're gonna get is their refugees.It's ok guys, I was told the icebergs would melt and give us more water in the long run.
Actually, it is on you and all Utah voters that voted for politicians that did not prepare for the future.In ‘83 they had a really late snowpack/cold spring, with a sudden change to 80* weather. ‘82 was also almost as big of a winter, so soil saturation was maxed out. It was the perfect combo, so the flooding was epic. You see the preparations happening with many reservoirs preemptively draining down so they have surge capacity, which I don’t believe was in place in ‘83.
That said, there could be some water in some houses really easy. The governor said pray for snow, he should have told folks to be more specific in their requests. I feel like this is on him.
Welcome back JackActually, it is on you and all Utah voters that voted for politicians that did not prepare for the future.
I stand by blaming you and all Utah voters for not praying better.Actually, it is on you and all Utah voters that voted for politicians that did not prepare for the future.
It's better if you ask for "moisture". The big man understands that terminology. It has to go before the "do the good that we need" part though.I prayed to end a dry spell, but I guess the message got misinterpreted.
This is literally what I thought too ha ha. Like what does voting have to do with rain fall and politicians asking for prayers (although I agree, politicians asking for their constituents to pray should absolutely be removed from office).I stand by blaming you and all Utah voters for not praying better.
