Are we all living with our heads in the sand? What part of “no water” don’t we get? Lake Mead’s level drops every day, and our city fathers are allowing new water parks to be built. We are running out of water, and that means no drinking water. Forget about water fountains, etc. We need water to drink, and if this insanity doesn’t stop, there won’t be any water.
What are the water officials thinking when they shrug off criticism about the water parks? Do they not look at the numbers and see our lake is dropping?
I have lived in this town 40 years and have seen Lake Mead’s floodgates open, but we have abused it so much the water level has dropped hundreds of feet.
When are people going to make a stand and say no more wasting water? Celebrities go to developing countries to teach them how to get fresh water; maybe it’s time for them to come to Las Vegas to teach our city fathers how to conserve the water in our precious Lake Mead.
