Water Conservation on Another Level

Water conservation is a necessity in the southwest. This need has been amplified during the last ten years with booming growth and a devastating drought. Water district representatives claim conservation efforts are working, but one group is challenging those efforts and believes we can do more. The 90 by 20 campaign is asking families to reduce their daily water use to 90 gallons per capita. In Las Vegas that would mean asking residents to reduce their usage by more than twenty-five percent. Is that realistic?
