I am very concerned about how our current legislators are not taking water concerns to heart when pursuing development projects in the state. We have not done enough to address the state's water shortage, and if there is not immediate rethinking on conservation and development, Arizona will eventually look like the Sahara Desert. I believe it is a sin that developers get to dictate that properties are required to have patches of grass that require use of our precious water supply to maintain. We need to implement water restrictions for lawns and even personal use. It's time to more frequently use recycled or grey water in these instances as well. Before this drought becomes more widespread, we should come together for the good of the state and plan for the future.
