(KSL News) A bill proposed for the upcoming legislative session would curb water use in state facilities.
The plan proposed by West Valley Rep. Larry Wiley would improve plumbing in state buildings, thus decreasing water use.
Money for the implementation of the plan would come from the budget of the Department of Natural Resources.
Utah residents currently have the second highest per capita use of water in the nation. Wiley hopes that if the state sets an example, Utahns will follow with their own conservation efforts.
