WEST JORDAN — Water conservation managers say blue should be the new "green" as they urge people to think differently about ways to conserve water in the second driest state in the nation.
To that end, the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District is hosting the Utah Blue Festival Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Conservation Garden Park, 8215 S. 1300 West in West Jordan.
The festival will feature workshops, garden tours, vendors, live bluegrass music, face-painting, crafts and games, children's activities and food. Admission is free.
The district has a goal of reducing water consumption by 25 percent per capita by 2025. The festival will include a water conservation display of water jugs that will demonstrate how Utahns compare with the rest of the nation when it comes to conserving water.
