Should taxpayer money be spent to develop additional water resources? What are the consequences of extracting too much groundwater? How much is wasted from outdated water pipes? What role will climate change play as our population grows? Utah’s Uncertain Water Future is collaboration between KUER News and KUED Channel 7.

Citizens for Dixie's Future Fact Sheet

Citizens for Dixie’s Future says Washington and Kane counties can conserve enough water to avert the need for the costly Lake Powell Pipeline. Instead, this local conservation group supports the Local Waters Alternative plan developed by Western Resource Advocates, which details a management plan that would cost less and deliver sufficient water to provide for about four times as many people in southwestern Utah in the next 35 years. Pipeline supporters say this approach would crimp quality of life, economic development and population.
