A "Water Conservation Notice" was placed on my door this morning. The Highland mayor and City Council necessarily mandate a reduction in lawn watering to only three days a week.
Utah has 118 golf courses. The average golf course uses about 312,000 gallons of water daily. This allows golfers to play on "the greens." Ironically, the word "green" also refers to the conservation of our natural resources the most-important of which is likely water.
If all of our golf courses in Utah are watered three days each week, and only April through September, they would use more than 2.8 billion gallons each year. The golf course at the Alpine Country Club in Highland still waters lawns daily.
