The Southern Nevada Water Authority spends thousands of dollars on ads telling the community to conserve water — grow rocks, not grass!

Yet, local leaders, in all their wisdom, allow multiple water parks to be built in the course of the next year. Where will all this water come from?

It seems as though there is no thought to the environment in the Las Vegas Valley. Granted, the parks will hire a good number of seasonal employees, but is it worth the drain on our water supply? So much for the idea of conservation.
