(KSL News) The rain and snow we got today was desperately needed. Governor Jon Huntsman has designated this coming Monday through Friday as "Water Week."
Snowpack and runoff levels are extremely low, and worries about a return of a drought are high. Water Week is intended to raise awareness of the importance of water conservation, quality and supply in the state.
House Minority Leader Ralph Becker said, "As we look towards the future, the use of water today is just critical for us to be able to make sure we have water for our kids and grandkids."
Politicians today joined other organizations in spreading awareness at the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy. They say we can all do our part by conserving.
